Watching the “A World Of Dreams: Voices From The Out100″ documentary will undoubtedly fill you with pride once you relive all the achievements by people of all walks of life in the past year who are profiled in the film.
Another reason to be proud? The documentary, produced by HereTV, has been nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Special Class category.
In the film, you’ll see familiar faces like screenwriter/activist Dustin Lance Black and cast members of ”Orange Is The New Black” like actress/comic Lea DeLaria and trans actress Laverne Cox but you’ll also see people outside the entertainment community who made a difference in all our lives like Edie Windsor, whose case prompted the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) or Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, plaintiffs in the marriage equality case that helped us say buh-bye to Proposition 8.
The film, written by Robbie Imes and directed by Athena Maroulis, originally aired in December and is Exec Produced by Paul Colichman (CEO, Here Media), Stephan Jarchow (Chairman, Here Media) and Co-Exec Produced by Josh Rosenzweig.
Here’s the trailer for the film:
The Daytime Emmys are June 22nd at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
