The Pride Against Prejudice project consists of:
The Book - Alabama activist Gary Wright II tells the struggles of the LGBTQ community living in The South fighting for equality, dignity, and acceptance. The book follows five Southern teenagers coming to age during the period of marriage equality in America. Although the main characters are fictional, they interact with actual historical characters and their personal stories are based upon true events.
The Movie - The screenplay is based upon the book, but the movie will have a twist: in addition to producing a big screen version of the film, we're letting people around the world act out their own versions of the movie. You'll be able to record and submit your own scenes, and we'll post them on our web site. Visitors will be able to see their friends and neighbors acting out their favorite scenes from the movie! We plan to start production of the movie in 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Movement - Taking the lessons learned from the marriage equality movement, and standing on the shoulders of the Civil Rights giants who came before us, we'll put the project into action! The struggle against prejudice is a never-ending battle: join the movement and share your story of Pride Against Prejudice!
The Sequel - Yes, the story continues with a second book and movie entitled Hood Army - Stay tuned!
