Nelly Queen: Crowd Funding Campaign


March 8, 2015

I would like to share the news about my documentary feature film,
“Nelly Queen: The Life and Times of Jose Sarria”. Jose Sarria was a pioneer civil-rights leader who ran for political office as an open gay man in 1961. As a Queer Latino Filmmaker and Activist, it is my goal to bring his largely unknown achievements and story to the big screen. I believe that his defiance of the oppression of his times and his unabashed embrace of gender identity, makes his story relevant and resonant to our present LGBTQ community.
Please help us preserve our history and reclaim Jose’s rightful place in the LGBTQ pantheon of heroes and in our school’s curriculum. Follow the link below for information. Please contribute and share with friends, colleagues and community.
Join The National LGBTQ Task Force, The International Court System and From the Heart Productions and support the making of this film. Every little bit helps.
