Lesbian Films & Series :: It Just Got Better

Until 1968, “Section II” of the Motion Picture Production Code outlawed lesbian characters in film. We are reclaiming its namesake as the new, premier outlet for relevant filmmakers and audiences alike.
Here is their funding pitch:
As a brief reminder, Section II, Inc. is a Benefit Corporation and film company dedicated to #BetterRepresentation of queer women in popular culture. We acquire, create, and
distribute premium LBTQ content across our multi-platform network of streaming and
VOD channels. We were among 8 teams, chosen out of 440 applicants, to participate in
the inaugural Dogfish Accelerator, a business-development incubator for the Film Industry,
and we are fundraising to build the company you helped shape over the last eight months.

Many of you are among our advisors and mentors– some are content creators, some we’ve met at networking events and film festivals along the way.  Each of you has lent your substantial Industry experience and inspiring creative vision to our plans, and thanks to you all, we are on the brink of our goal to bring technology and entertainment together to foster creativity as the next step in the fight for LBTQ equality.We have already licensed the world’s largest library of LBTQ content and continue to create a pipeline across multiple channels for the Section II projects that will be acquired and created for years to come.We are asking for two things in relation to this campaign:1. Please let us know if you can introduce us to journalists, bloggers, or general connectors who might be willing to hear more about Section II and help us spread the word about the campaign, which launches  on May 22.2. We are constantly building out our network of strategic partners, content creators, LBTQ content enthusiasts, and allies. I am always happy to follow up on any leads and would appreciate an extra push towards networking and collaboration leading into this next phase for Section II.
As many of you know, SECTION II of the Motion Picture Production Code outlawed lesbians on screen until 1968. We are re-purposing our namesake and have assembled an amazing team from across the film, art, and tech worlds to bring this vision to life.We’ve reached a critical moment in our efforts and have decided that this campaign for $50,000 of pre-valuation funding is the best way to complete the next upgrade to our website, produce our first original web series this summer, and allow ourselves the time to secure a traditional lead investor as excited about big data in niche markets (and LBTQ content) as we are.We hope that by reaching out to you now we will be able to secure a network of support and evangelism that will help us make a splash in the early days of our campaign. Being introduced to a project through people like you gives us instant credibility with your network of friends and colleagues and will be a tremendous help as we build momentum with our promotions and marketing. Generous donors who don’t already know us rely heavily on the buzz created by early word of mouth in order to find projects that interest them– it’s a top indicator for crowd funding success. We’ve been preparing for this over the last several months and invite you to join our efforts as we enter the home stretch before we launch.

Thank You, Again

I hope this update finds you well and will also serve as a great chance to reconnect ahead of a fun and exciting summer.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you and keeping you updated on our progress over the next several weeks.
