Dear friends and supporters,

We are humbled and delighted to announce that we have begun submitting our Stories of Intersex and Faith to film festivals which is the best way for us to get the attention needed to secure a distribution contract for a wide audience.

We could not have done this without you!

On Thursday, Oct. 25, on the eve of Intersex Awareness Day (USA), we held a private screening for some of our local donors, supporters, and participants (interviewees and b-roll actors) at CinemaSalem, Salem, MA. We were humbled by their enthusiastic responses to the film, some of which you can read on our new website dedicated solely to the documentary:

Dr. Timothy Johnson, MD, MPH, retired Medical Editor with ABC News and author of "Finding God in the Questions" says:

“Stories of Intersex and Faith" does an amazing job of both educating about a confusing medical condition and illuminating the religious questions surrounding this phenomenon. My brain was wonderfully engaged and my spirit was deeply moved. I regard this as a ground breaking effort long overdue.

There are still many ways you can help:

DONATE: We still have many production costs hanging over our heads and new costs to enter film festivals and get the word out.

VOLUNTEER: If we get into a festival in your city we will need volunteers to spread the word so people with come view the film. Subscribe here and on our social channels to stay in the loop.

SOCIAL MEDIA: Share our new trailer on the new website. Like our Documentary FaceBook page. Follow us on Twitter @intersexfaith. Subscribe for updates.

BE PATIENT: The only downside to film festivals is that it means we cannot book public screenings during our festival year (or we disqualify ourselves for these important venues). However, private screenings at conferences and booked events are sometimes possible so contact us for details.

Thank you for partnering with us to create a world where every child is welcome. Period.
