  1. Hello,

    I am the producer and director of THE SONS OF TENNESSEE WILLIAMS, a widely acclaimed LGBT documentary about the first civil rights for gay people in the western hemisphere, occurring 50 years ago in the city of New Orleans. These men used the traditions of Mardi Gras, staged a costumed revolution and brought gay culture into public settings by the early 1960s. Fabulousness, feathers and glitter won this first war for freedom.

    SONS appeared at 18 film festivals before premiering in NYC and Los Angeles for a theatrical run and dozens of good reviews and has now been released on DVD. Please follow this link to a press kit from US distributor First Run Features.


    There is also an online HD screener of the movie at:

    I hope you will consider hosting or sponsoring a screening of this inspiring and important story of the fight for gay equality at your festival or during your pride festivities. I offer this with no screening fee and do not expect travel expenses. In attendance with me would be Albert Carey, 80 year old civil rights pioneer and star of the movie.

    very sincerely,

    tim wolff
