The Filmmaker’s Statement

“Powered By Love 1”

This film is a series of snap shots of some of the activists, artists, performers and organisations I had the pleasure to meet during LGBT History Month, February 2016.

There was no pre- production to this film or budget. It is a spontaneous, personal journey of discovery of that month. I had an overwhelming response from people who wanted to contribute to this production from all corners of the LGBT community.

The diversity, talent and social pioneering present within the heart of LGBT community, far extends the realms of any film.

My hope is that this film resonates the aspirations of some of those pioneers, who campaign for equality and freedom of expression for the LGBT community, of which I am proud to be part.
