Help Us Make “Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story”
For over two years, Jack, Ben Leon and I have been working on a documentary about the late pornographer-turned-philanthropist Chuck Holmes, who built Falcon Studios and, later, helped found the Human Rights Campaign. To finish it, we need your help.
Chuck was gay porn’s Hugh Hefner: a wildly successful businessman with a penchant for fast cars, faster blonds and free speech battles. But after two years, dozens of interviews and countless hours of shooting, editing, and transcribing, we’ve hit a wall. (So say my credit cards.)
Chuck’s story is an important and untold piece of gay history, but without the funds to do the final interviews (including travel for older Falcon stars), equipment rentals, legal fees, footage rights and editing costs, we can’t finish it. So while I hate to start our porn pledge drive in the middle of your masturbation session, we’re asking for your help.
We know times are tough, but think of it like a blow job — even a little is appreciated. And I’m already on my knees. Not only will Jack and I love you forever, you’ll be helping put together an important (and very exciting) piece of gay history.
