Hi ,

I am a Christian film maker and recently attached my self to the Peter Tatchell foundation in London , I would like to help out . I recently made a christian lesbian film, my situation is a bit complicated ..but just to say that i am for gay rights and believe in the Completed Works of the Cross.

I was hoping to do a promotion with some of your members on it, I think it would educate the Christian community who are the main antagonist in all queer love stories and it would help Christian gays and lesbians to make a stand for their faith and their love . Lastly that it would help change the law in NIgeria.


Thanks
