USA: Lesbian Filmmaker Goes Undercover at Bachmann and Associates

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Undercover at Bachmann & AssocBachmann & Associates had no idea that they were the target of yet another undercover gay advocate visit, and this time it was in the form of a young lesbian, a filmmaker from GAY U.S.A. the Movie. While the visit was contrived, and the character expounded upon, the reality and the seriousness of the possible harm to young gays and lesbians cannot be overstated.

Last week as co-producer on the film, I helped Kristina Lapinski set up and pursue a counseling session at one of the two Bachmann clinics in Minnesota, where she played the part of a confused 24 year old lesbian who had just moved from California to Minnesota to marry her long time male friend, Jake, all to please her Christian parents.

Last year, Bachmann & Associates had been stung by a gay man from the group Truth Wins Out, (TWO) making national headlines because of its high profile ownership by Marcus Bachmann, husband of then presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann, with the resulting confirmation of disreputable reparative therapy practices and the revelation that the clinic received federal funding via Medicaid.

NC, USA: Gay USA The Movie to Film Amendment One Battle

Amendment OneFor the past two years GAY U.S.A. the Movie has shot footage all around the country, including in California, New York, Minnesota, D.C. and in Washington State, and now GAY U.S.A. is heading to North Carolina and other Southern States.

Need we say that the South has never been ‘civil rights friendly'; and now the final frontier sees its share of combat as almost every Southern U.S. state bans same-gender marriage, except for North Carolina. Well they still won’t issue licenses! The practice to amend state constitutions is an unsavory taste of draconian back peddling, considering the ambiance to the North!

While things are not that fair in any event in NC, with state law that already bans all councils from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, the proposed referendum, called Amendment One, would introduce a constitutional ban on marriage between same-sex couples.
