‘You Are Loved’ video chronicles rural pride in Montana

Monday, September 5, 2011

I’ve written about the importance of Rural Pride Celebrations before — but if you want to see it firsthand, or if you ever wondered what the 2011 Montana Pride Celebration was like, well wonder no more.

Wet Paint Studios beautifully chronicled the event with this amazing piece of film:

From the Wet Paint Studios’ description:

“You Are Loved” is a documentary chronicling Montana Pride — celebrating the diversity of all walks of life. The documentary explores what it means to be an LGBTQI in Montana, a rural state of not even a million people. The response from the community in Bozeman, MT was overwhelming, and without it, this documentary would not be possible. Enjoy the show!”

  1. A fabulous video! Just a little north, here in Alberta, we don’t hear (or know) much about queer life and organizations in Montana — our loss. It could be very useful to build greater links across the 49th; we have a lot happening here, and so do our friends in Saskatchewan — a large, rural province with roughly the same pop. as Montana. By sharing our love, support and ideas, we’d all be stronger!

  3. There are no words to describe how good I feel after seeing this video… I went to band camp with Vanessa… I attended a jazz workshop with Eden Atwood… and I know all of those streets they marched down. Next year this guy’s going to pride.
