Our congratulations to Rick Flynn (graduate student of the MA in Visual and Media Anthropology). His kickstarter campaign for the film project "Golf Alpha Yankee" an LGBT human rights documentary was successful and reached the goal of $30,000. More backers are welcome.
About Golf Alpha Yankee (G.A.Y): The film provides an intimate immersion into the world of LGBT people from Iran, who were forced to flee their home country, and are now waiting in limbo in conservative Turkey as asylum seekers with the United Nations. They hope to receive resettlement in the west, where they may one day be free to love without penalty. The MA in Visual and Media Anthropology funded the first research for this film (MA thesis of Rick Flynn) through the Film and Media Fund of our institute.
