Upcoming Deadlines


A reminder that two important deadlines are arising this week here at TEM:

1) The Kickstarter deadline to support "GAYS IN THE MILITARY: HOW AMERICA THANKED ME" by Vincent Cianni (a TEM fiscal sponsee). Deadline: July 31st at 11:59pm EST 

About: Over the past 3 years, documentary photographer Vincent Cianni has traveled across the US documenting the personal stories of 120 gay and lesbian veterans and service members.  His project, Gays in the Military:  How America Thanked Me is an oral history and photographic project representing the men and women who have suffered from or risen above injustices they faced in the US military due to their sexual orientation.  The non-profit publisher Daylight Books has agreed to publish Gays in the Military in the Spring of 2014 as a 160-page hardcover book, but in order to get to this final stage, Vincent needs your help.  By contributing to his Kickstarter campaign, you will help in raising funds to cover the costs associated with publishing his book.
