It's been quite a journey the last few years -- and now the remarkable story of David Kato and his fellow kuchus is finally available to watch in households across the United States. As always, we wish David were here to share this moment with us - he would surely have been thrilled.
You can find Call Me Kuchu on DVD, iTunes, Amazon and Video On Demand in the U.S. (And never fear, we haven't forgotten those of you who requested a DVD reward: your DVD is on its way!) The DVD, available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, comes complete with five deleted scenes - including rare access to the Swedish asylum process of one of the activists we follow in the film, and a wonderful short piece that follows the inimitable Bishop Christopher Senyonjo during his first visit to San Francisco Pride!
In addition to the DVD and digital download, you can also watch Call Me Kuchu on demand on Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, DirecTV, Echostar, Cablevision, Verizon, TVN, Charter, and AT&T (check your local listings for more info).
