About the Film
When Jennifer Chang and Lisa Dazols first fell in love, they vowed to follow a life of adventure. The couple had no idea that their promise would lead them to leave their 9-5 jobs, pick up a video camera, and travel to fifteen countries through Asia, Africa and South America for one year.
Without any film experience, they bought a book on “How to Make a Documentary” and went in search of the people who are leading the movement for gay, lesbian and transgender equality. While interviewing LGBT leaders across the developing world they realized that their journey could have larger impact beyond just self-growth.
Their documentary captures the momentous changes occurring in the status of queer people around the world today. A film in partnership with the It Gets Better Project, the joint mission is to share stories of hope around the world.
Happily legally married and now back at home in San Francisco, Lisa is a licensed clinical social worker working in HIV care at UCSF. Jenni is a business manager for eBay.
