The event is hosted by Melanie Nathan, Publisher of GAY USA BLOG and a Marin Human Rights Commissioner, Rachel Wahba, co-owner of Olivia Cruises and Resorts, Jan Foster, founder and host of MWSW.
GAY U.S.A. the Movie includes hundred of hours of footage of encounters, interviews and scenes at every spectrum of the equality movement, speaking to unlikely opponents and renowned proponents of LGBT rights. Kristina has extended her reach from liberal to right, extrapolating revealing footage that will serve to open the door to the millions of Americans who are unacquainted with gay rights in America.
What makes this film unique is the message it brings, as it seeks to reconcile the varying perspectives on the issue of equality. The filmmaker fearlessly enters into the world of the opponents to LGBT rights, in her endeavor to break barriers. This is a quest to enlighten America. Those on the fence can be influenced through this documentary. They are the ones who can change the parameters of LGBT acceptance and sway the road to equality.
Gay U.S.A. the Movie thanks Jason’s for the space, and the hosts of this party Melanie Nathan, Rachel Wahba, and Jan Foster.

In the words of Kristina Lapinski, “Public education and compelling stories will win our movement. Media has the profound effect of
exposing new worlds to viewers in a dramatic and impactive way, and this endeavor will truly reach out to every demographic with a
pop culture flair. Our community needs a full scope educational film, and GAY U.S.A. will bring the issues to the big screen;”
and Melanie Nathan: “I am so excited about the promise of this project. I believe that our civil rights are attainable to the extent of full
and absolute equality; yet the challenge remains in finding a way to inform those who remain uninformed, misinformed or indifferent
to this vital American value.”
GAY U.S.A. the movie needs your help to be completed. This is an opportunity for all to participate in our equality.
