FATHERS Biz Card Front Dec 2016.jpg


Imagine a world where AIDS never happened and our heroes lived. Who would they be? Who would we be? Fathers Project is a web series that explores these questions in short documentaries, weaving history, real life events and fiction to create an image of a queer utopia. Written, directed & edited by Leo Herrera. A community funded, sponsored project of The GLBT Historical Society.

May Herrera tempt more of us to imagine change with queer ancestral qualities, change that learns from our past, and ultimately, change on the scale that we need it.” - Ben Miller, Slate.com

Fucking bold and brilliant.” - Charles Pulliam-Moore, Gizmodo.com
