As part of P Town’s Summer of Love and Marriage, queerguru gets to talk to the leading gay activist Evan Wolfson known to many simply as ‘the marriage guy’. Wolfson  is the founder and president of Freedom to Marry, a group that became a major driving force same-sex marriage in the United States. He is the visionary who started work on this matter of equality almost four decades ago, and now part of the story  of how he successfully led the fight, is documented in a new film The Freedom to Marry by Eddie Rosenstein

On the eve of the documentary’s digital launch on June 6th 2017, Wolfson talked about how the battle for same-sex marriage maybe over in the US, there are still too many countries around the globe where we still need to heed the fight, plus there is also the question of our community joining the struggle to seize our own country back.

The interview via Facebook was filmed by Roger Walker-Dack for “queerguru reports’ on PTV’s Channel 99.

Once in a blue moon when we are ploughing through our usual packed schedule of movies to review, we come across a wee gem that hails an extraordinary new talent that gets us more than a little excited. Discovering that this particular new find wrote, directed and starred in his first feature, but who is barely out of college, makes it all even more remarkable.  Prom King, 2010 is already being hailed as one of the best new LGBT movies of 2017, and queerguru talked to its creator being hailed as the new wunderkind : Christopher Schaap.  He is an old-fashion romantic in a young soul.

The interview via Facetime was filmed and edited by Roger Walker-Dack for “queerguru reports” for PTV’s Channel 99.
