Video by Natasha Mendonca YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-XbP59N7l4 If gay meant happy them days, and gay means illegal nowadays, on this auspicious Pongal & Eid, what is it that we choose to reap? Violence, shame and repression, or freedom of being and expression? Maha Gay Pongal Special - plant these seeds in your subconscious- sing it, hum it, whistle it, repeatedly, you might just love it, seriously! until they begin to eradicate our colonial and regressive legacy, provoke debate, even anarchy, (yes! 377 IS history) So you and I can create a reality where we can be gay AND happy!

This live music video was shot at the Bandra Base in Mumbai in July, 2013 as a single take performance with no edits. The musicians, cinematographer, lights, sound and stage crew all worked in unison to experiment with the single take as a form. ***This work is intended solely for non commercial purposes and directed towards social criticism and commentary and the use of an existing work is consonant with fair dealing principles of parody under copyright law.

              Dir. Scott Bloom 2007 100 min. USA Profiling the life and times of one of the gay community's most visible and tenacious advocates for change, Rev. Troy Perry, "Call Me Troy" is a truly inspirational story about a remarkable and dynamic individual whose activism was decades ahead of its time. Rev. Perry is perhaps best known as the founder of the Metropolitan Community Church - the first church to recognize the spiritual needs of the gay community - but his "firsts" don't stop there. He was the first openly gay person to serve on the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations. In 1969, Perry performed the first public same-sex wedding in the U.S., and in 1970 he filed the first-ever lawsuit seeking legal recognition for same-gender marriages. From presidential advisor to outspoken advocate, Perry has been on the front lines leading the charge for equal rights and protections for gay men and lesbians the world over as well as providing a place for all people, gay and straight, to worship side by side. This film celebrates his life and his legacy. http://cart.frameline.org/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=T749 Best Documentary, ReelHeART International Film Festival Audience Award, Best Documentary, Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Audience Award, Best Film, Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Audience Award, Best Documentary, Cinekink, New York Runner Up, Audience Award, Best Documentary, Palm Springs International Film Festival ""Call Me Troy" presents a history of the MCC as well as a biography of Troy Perry, and places both in the context of gay life in America in the second half of the twentieth century. It's a big enthusiastic film, as befits its subject, and adds yet another element to the ever-growing picture of diversity within America's gay community." - Sarah Boslaugh, Film Critic, PLAYBACK:stl "Maybe the best storytelling of any film this year is, in fact, a documentary by Scott Bloom about Troy Perry, the founder of the Metropolitan Community Church. ...[T]he telling of his story (mostly in the first person but with the help of a really entertaining cast of cohorts) is so comprehensive and so rich in its scope that you are left feeling as though you lived alongside the man. And what a life is has been." - Mark James, PlanetOut.com

                      This is a pitch reel for a RAISING CHELSEA docu-series/documentary special. Produced by Wayne Mahon and Mark Gottwald. We do not own all of the footage. Some was shot by Wayne Mahon, some is owned by Kevin Montgomery-Duban and some was taken from the internet. This isn't for sale, it is merely a sales tool and can be used as an educational tool. Regardless, it is a testament to the bravery and love of the Montgomery-Duban Family.
