Below is the trailer for Second Class Citizen’s, a documentary by by Ryan James Yezak. Here is Yezak’s description of the project:
ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY:
A second class citizen is defined as: a person whose rights and opportunities are treated as less important than those of other people in the same society. There are many areas in which gays, lesbians, & bisexuals do not have the same rights & opportunities as others in society. We must change this now.
I want to make a documentary that encompasses all areas in which we are discriminated against. The general population is not aware that discrimination against the gay community goes beyond marriage & bullying. There is far too much hate directed towards our community and I want to capture that hate on camera. In addition, I want to explore where this hate comes from, why it continues to exist, and what we must do to get rid of it. A better solution is needed because the solution we have right now isn’t working fast enough.
I am not a second class citizen. You are not a second class citizen. Right now, the laws in place (and lack thereof) say that we are. Let’s change that.
AREAS OF DISCRIMINATION COVERED:
*EDUCATION (PRIVATE SCHOOLS)
*BLOOD, SEMEN, & BONE MARROW DONATION
*GAY PANIC DEFENSE
The trailer is a history of the gay rights movement in America…we’ve come so far and yet have so much further to go.
Yezak needs to raise $50,000 to help make this project happen. Please click here and make a pledge.
