Hooked Up Reunion - BTGWTV's first short

Posted by strumquill on 2012.01.22 at 14:13
Beyond the Ghetto - Within the Village has gotten into making short films (NO not porno!)

Our first short is called Hooked Up Reunion about a "club kid" who discovers he has just picked up his former basher from his local bar. What will he do next?

Here is the trailer:

The short is complete and we have a campaign on indiegogo to raise funds to distribute the film to queer film festivals around North America. Consider donating. Or at least spread the trailer link around. 

Matthew Presidente and Tara C Taylor perform Matty's tune Feeling Good at the Vancouver North American Outgames with crowd shots taken from the Sunset Beach Pride Festival 2011

 Matthew Presidente's newest video - Rainbow Reaction

Vancouver videographer and musician Stephen Emery's contribution to the "It's Get's Better" Project to prevent suicide amongst LGBTQ youth.


YouTube link

This vid is particularly for those young, "misfit", rocker/punker/folkster youth out there who are currently dealing with the angst of not only finding their creative muses but also dealing with homophobia and sexual identity issues within music and pop culture that often does not tell their stories.

Well good news. A community of beautiful, inspirational, musical influences, mentors, friends, and performers -LGBT and Allies alike- are singing proud out there to support you.

This short video provides an example from musicians who played local Pride events in Vancouver, Canada featuring:

Matthew Presidente, Tara C Taylor, Jeffery Straker, Cris Derkson, Scatterheart, Sugar Beach, and Kim Kuzma.

You WILL find YOUR song: and it DOES get better.

Hugs and Love,
Stephen Emery
