Every movie has its stars, but without a supporting cast it would be difficult to create an effective storyline. We were fortunate to be able to assemble an amazing group of both straight and queer youth and adults for the movie. Some were seasoned actors while for others it was their first time in front of the camera lens. Either way, they showed their talents and did a great job. Like the stars, everyone freely contributed a great amount of their time to the production because they all believed so strongly in the importance of the message. Dream Weaver Communications is pround to have been able to work with such a great group of caring individuals. Please help us support their work by telling others about the movie and helping us promote it to the community.
