OUTmusic the LGBTQ Academy of Recording Arts (LARA) has launched a Kickstarter campaign, with a goal of $200,000 to be raised by the end of September 2013.
The funds will help the completion of a documentary about queer music culture titled the Academy's music documentary film “For Which WE Stand " (One Queer Music Nation In The Visible, to be produced by Paul Warner and directed by Sean Robinson.
These funds will also help the production of the 9th Annual OUTmusic Awards to take place in Las Vegas, NV, on January 16th - 20th, 2014, which will be the focus and the core of this documentary film, giving unknown LGBT artists the opportunity to shine in the spotlight.
“I’m very excited to be directing this film, and with the success of this Kickstarter Campaign, we will produce a socially and politically pro-active feature-length documentary film, that will not only spotlight queer music culture, but will keep the torch of LARA burning, as the fight for equality moves forward into the next era,” Robinson said in a recent statement.
