Support The Film to Spread Friendship and Equality
Opening Day is a film about Friendship and Equality. It isn’t just for the LGBTQ community though, it’s for everyone. They are raising money on Indiegogo. Recently I caught up with Dani Cordaro to learn more about the effort; here’s what he told me:
What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?
We hope to fuel the national conversation around gender inequality, specifically within the transgender community. Many transgender people are faced with hatred, ridicule and disgust when revealing their true selves to their family, friends and communities. The filmmakers of Opening Day believe strongly that no one should be in fear to be themselves. We are living in a vicious reality, one that needs to be changed drastically and quickly. The filmmakers hope to educate, evoke emotion and ignite a campaign about gender inequality in this country and across the world through this short but poignant film.
How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?
We are hoping to raise $18,000 by August 14th. This amount will cover production costs for Opening Day. We have an amazing cast and crew lined up and excited to create this project! Thus far, we have raised $515. We know a small push, will go far though.
Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?
We are hoping to be a voice for the transgender community. We want to assist in educating those who may not understand what it is to be transgender and why those who are should be treated no differently than anyone else. We can’t help but be who we are. It’s ridiculous that we are fighting against those who are doing just that. There is far too much hatred in this country and in this world against the transgender community that if we expand an understanding and an appreciation of human decency, we will consider ourselves successful.
