"You People" is a short film that deals with Gay and Lesbian Rights. It follows the life of Shane, the butch female protagonist who has been facing discrimination her whole life. She has been looked over and treated like a second class citizen because of her sexual orientation and looks. Then one day when she heads into class and receives the same treatment, she finally fights back. She doesn't confront fellow class-mates but instead the teacher of the class, Mrs. Whiting. The argument dives into Shane's life style and how it is wrong in the eyes of God. This leads Shane into a frenzy and causes a huge outburst.

We are still in production and will start shooting on March 18th. We will keep you posted with videos on here and on our Facebook page, which is http://www.facebook.com/YouPeopleTheMovie.

The Advertisement we will be using looks like this, but you should also note that if you donate enough your name will be at the bottom of the Advertisement as well.

Author's thoughts:

Its all about awareness...I wrote it because I feel that people need to be aware that there is still inequality between different sexualities... There is so much prejudice and now it's getting worse with all the bullying and the suicides... I consider my self a part of the LBGTQ community and have been lashed out at by ignorant people. It pains me to see anyone treat my close friends who have a different sexual preference as if they're vermin... It's no better than racism... I didn't just write this for the LBGTQ community but for anyone who is different... Whether is be race, gender, sexuality, or even a disability... I know that this little screenplay can't change the way the whole world sees people who are different and they're allowed to have they're opinions but I hope it makes just one person learn to tolerate others' differences or at the very least make just one person THINK... That's all I could ask for... I'm a simple person with simple dreams but it kills me to see society at war with itself.
