Leading LGBT publication Go Magazine wrote, “An Affirmative Act is a masterpiece of artistic commentary.” Echelon Magazine proclaimed the film, “A riveting courtroom drama guaranteed to inflame the passions of the masses.”

This landmark film stars Charles Durning (2-time Academy Award, 4-time Golden Globe, 9-time Emmy winner & nominee), Blanche Baker (Emmy winner; Sixteen Candles), Costas Mandylor (Saw movies; The Pledge), Justin Deas (6-time Emmy winner), Randy Jones (Cowboy – “The Village People”), Robert Clohessy (“Boardwalk Empire”; “Oz”), Thomas G. Waites (And Justice For All; The Thing), Rachael Robbins (O.B.A.M. Nude), Jackie Martling (“The Howard Stern Show” ), and Eric Etebari (“Witchblade”; The Lincoln Lawyer).
