People of color this is your opportunity to raise awareness for marriage equality.
People of color this is your opportunity to raise awareness for marriage equality. One of Velvetpark‘s members, Krystal Banzon, is directing a PSA for marriage equality called “1,324 Reasons for Marriage Equality.”
Banzon is an emerging young director, and a Point Foundation Scholar who is finishing up a Masters Degree at NYU’s Tish School, ITP department.
The PSA is being produced by LGBTQ Marriage Equality in collaboration with Alan Cumming (who you’ll recognize from his role in The L Word and The Good Wife). This short, inspired by Empire State Pride Agenda’s document “1,324 Reasons for Marriage Equality in New York State”, describes the legal rights New York statutes award to married individuals—including life and death matters.
So this call is for professional actors as well as non-professionals like you and me! Read the details below:
