New Hope Celebrates History Launches Documentary Fundraiser

In keeping with its mission to honor the people, places, and moments that made New Hope one of the most vibrant LGBTQ communities in America, New Hope Celebrates History announces a campaign to raise $10,000 to complete the funding for a new documentary film with a working title, Nowhere but HERE.

Nowhere but HERE chronicles the lives, loves, parties, artists, authors, entrepreneurs, entertainers, and community activists who made New Hope their home. It’s also important that we preserve and celebrate how the New Hope community embraced lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals. It happened nowhere but here, which is why this film has to be made.”

Daniel Brooks, Director of New Hope Celebrates History and founder of New Hope Celebrates

The film, written and directed by local filmmaker Sara Scully and local award-winning videographer Bob Krist, will include lively interviews, dazzling digitalized artifacts and articles, fun club clips, and priceless photos spanning over 50 years. According to Brooks, much of the film production to date has been funded through donations, but the producers are $10,000 shy of their pre-production goal.

“We hope to get at least seven donations of $1,000 or more. Those donors will be called TheMagnificent Seven and be credited as a producer.”

To make any contribution, send a check payable to:
