I believe this a worthy cause and hope that readers will support it. Burmese human rights activist, Aung Myo Ming returns to Burma, now Myanmar, after 24 years in exile, bearing a gift to his homeland, that, hopefully, its current rulers will appreciate.
Myo Ming and Dana.io, the NGO he works with are making a movie titled, “This Kind of Love”. The film documents Myo’s journey as a human rights activist raising awareness of LGBT rights in Burma. Dana.io, which has many North American members who are arts and silver-screen activists and writers are making an appeal for crowd-funding to complete and distribute the film.I was told about this by Jeanne Marie Hallacy, Director and Producer of this and several other work,s in an email sent to my gmail Inbox. Use the link below for more information on the movie, and to see what they’re all about and what they’re up to:
This Kind of Love – Dana.io Crowd-Funding
The following is Jeanne Marie’s message:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I need your help.
My new documentary film, This Kind of Love, is a moving account of Aung Myo Min, a Burmese human rights activist who returned home after years in exile to introduce LGBT rights to his countrymen and women.
We have been filming Myo for the past two years and have strong material about his vital work in Burma.
The good news is, we just received a grant for $7800 for the distribution of the film. When completed, the film will be screened by Myo across Burma, and will be made available freely to NGOs working on human rights.
But we still need funds in order to finish the film, so I’m asking for your support with our crowd-funding initiative. Please consider a contribution of any amount. No donation is too small.
Thank you from the heart.
