Gay adoption video filmmaker looking for funds

Man behind viral hit Homecoming wants to create a video to fight for gay adoption laws in Europe

Gay adoption video filmmaker looking for funds
13 September 2012

The filmmaker behind one of the biggest viral videos of the year is looking for funds to create a gay adoption movie.

Viewed over 800,000 times since being released in April, Homecoming told the story of a soldier returning home to propose to his boyfriend.

Inspiring people such as UK Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, British personality Stephen Fry, and business tycoon Richard Branson to create pro-gay marriage videos for Out4Marriage, filmmaker Mike Buonaiuto is hoping to repeat the same success.

Buonaiuto is hoping to raise $1000 (£620, €774) for the video, and has raised nearly 40% of the amount. By giving $25, your name will appear in the credits as a sponsor for the campaign.

He said: ‘We need your help now to do the same with this next film which will show a same-sex family’s home movie footage, while asking the question why these children should been any differently in the eyes of European law.’

Countries to allow gay adoption include Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Britain.
