Julio of Jackson Heights - Fundraising Drive
« on: March 19, 2011, 12:06:56 PM »
Hi Everyone, I wanted to let you know about an important project that needs some help in the next 36 hours.

My good friend Richard Shpuntoff has been working since 1993 to document the Queens Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade and Festival. His documentary tells the story of the 1990 gay bashing murder of Julio Rivera and how this heinous act galvanized a community which now hosts one of the largest and most vibrant celebrations of LGBT pride in the country.

This documentary is an important part not only of our local history, but the history of the LGBT movement across the country as well.

Completing this film will ensure that Julio's murder, and the positive change that came to JH because of it will not be forgotten.

Would you consider pledging a small amount towards the overall goal of $12,000 as well ? We have 36 hours left to reach our goal and every donation counts, no matter how small even $5.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for your pledge !

To view a trailer of the documentary and to make your pledge please visit:

single man can inspire to victory an army of
thousands. If one concerned with ordinary gain can
create such an effect, how much more will be produced by one who cares for greater things ?" -Chunag Tse
