Pride. Debra, Kamika, Deondray, Quincy.

Mood Tune: A Deeper Love by Aretha Franklin (You Tube).

Pride doesn't have to just happen during your assigned month. It can happen all year round.

So let me just cut to the chase. I got to see a couple projects by people I know during the Fusion Film Fest this weekend.

Jumpin The Broom, a film about LGBT of color couples, who have made life-long commitments to each other through marriage. By Debra Wilson and supported by Kamika Dunlap. Check out their new venture, Jengo TV.

The DL Chronicles, episode Robert, a series about men in various stages of development in their LGBT identity. By Deondray Gossett and Quincy LeNear.

Both projects are excellent and done by good people. The pride comes from not just knowing I have similar life and background experiences as the makers of the projects, but also from seeing them have a dream and making it happen.

Check Debra, Kamika, Deondray, and Quincy out. Send them some love. And if you get a moment to support either project, try and do so.

Jumpin The Broom seem like and interesting story. It may dismiss alot of misconception people have about gay/lesbian marriages and commitments. I don't have showtime but for that I'm thinking of ordering it to see it tonight.
