Shameless Promotion

It's been a while since I've talked about Camp Out, the documentary film created about The Naming Project Summer Camp. After all the showings last summer and fall, it's been pretty quiet. However...all that's about to change!

Camp Out is scheduled to make its television premiere on July 28 at 9:00 Eastern (I assume 8:00 Central) on LOGO. LOGO is a cable channel devoted to GLBT programming. You may have it. Call your cable provider now! If you watch it, you will see me play the guitar poorly and try to sing by a campfire.

The coincidental thing is that the 28th is the evening before we begin our 4th year of the TNP Camp (Camp Out was filmed our first year). All the camp staff are going to go out to J's house to watch it (he's the only one who has LOGO). He's trying to invite as many people over to his house as possible. However, we hope that more people will be watching this in homes across the country. If you are willing to host a Camp Out party (because you have LOGO), please send me an email. I can direct other people to get in touch with you. If you want to watch it without having people over, that's OK too.

We've been trying to prepare for this. I've been brushing up the TNP web site. We now have an on-line donation venue, which we have needed for a while. We're excited to have more people get to see the film. We are proud of it!

If you have no clue what Camp Out is, then you should go here. To see more on LOGO, go here.

(then donate something)

This is awesome, dude, and I can't believe I hadn't heard about this until now. I tend to not make a big hairy deal about it over on ZFS! (because my mom isn't out where she works), but C-dog has two mommies, one of whom (step-mom) is an ordained minister in the Disciples of Christ faith. So believe me when I say that this is a documentary that hits close to home. Thanks for the heads up, yo! Will definately be watching.

Very cool. It's only shown in film festivals up to this point, so most people haven't heard of it. Let me know what you think when you watch it. It's a fun mix of gay and Christian. Like a cocktail. A gay, Christian cocktail, if you can imagine such a thing.

What would be in that cocktail?

Malibu and Mogen David?
Chambord and Manischewitz?
(These would also be the Gay, Jewish cocktails.)
