Aussie filmmaker seeks funding for gay marriage doc
26 November 2012

Brisbane gay rights activist Chad St. James is seeking funding for a documentary about the battle to legalize same-sex marriage in Australia.

The film, Love Like Yours, follows the highs and lows of the fight for marriage equality in Australia including the votes in parliament that failed to pass the legislation and the imaginative costumes and sloganeering at rallies across the country.

St. James aims to release the film at the end of 2013 but is seeking $4,000 (Australian dollars, $4,200, €3,200) in order to do that. Generous donors will be awarded prizes. Find out more on the film’s Go Fund Me page.
