This film gives a voice to the perspectives of the LGBT community with a focus on family and loving with no bounds.
Love Fit to Box"Love Fit to Box", is the first of a series of stories about limited perceptions of what defines love.
In this story, the bonds of loyalty are tested as a woman, "Roxanne Ellis", comes out as a lesbian to her family. In attempts to express that the most authentic part of a person's ability to love is nothing physical, Roxanne sparks a conversation with her brother, "Shakar", which allows him to re examine his point of view. During this journey, he discovers that the eyes through which much of the "straight" world views the LGBT community, don't enable an accurate depiction of who they really are as people.
Through powerful dialogue, and a comedic edge, "Love Fit to Box", thoroughly explores LGBT perspectives, offers you insight, laughter, and a film that shows that LOVE is a boundless possibility.
Our goal is that this film will shed light on the humanity that does not escape one's core because of their sexuality. We hope to motivate our audience to create a space of healing within families and turn respect into a cultural norm. If we can learn to accept each other despite our differences, we can create a society where understanding overshadows ignorance and love can be expressed as intended...unconditionally.
