To whom it may concern,

My name is Lianda Tel and I am a student at The New York Film Academy in Los Angeles.
I'm originally from The Netherlands were homosexuals are widely excepted. I grew up in a culture where people are comfortable talking about and be around gays and lesbians everywhere.
Coming to America I feel the same openness in certain creative fields but not in every area or culture.
Currently I am working on a project that is very dear to our hearts, especially our film maker Charlie Peppers.
We want to tell a story about this Gay Fraternity leader who has issues with coming out. It is a story about how strong we really are and how we see ourselves. It is a story that needs to inspire people to accept and understand the gay community.
In my hope to raise some awareness for this project that is shooting in April so we have put up a website to raise some money as well. I hope you will review the site and hopefully can give us some notes on the project and hope you will spread the awareness of our project.
Please email me suggestions or questions at lianda.tel@nyfa.edu.
