My Gay Toronto - Bellini's 8 1/2

Rainbow Camping

Several years ago, Sault Ste. Marie-based filmmaker Dan Nystedt heard about Rainbow Camp, a camp for "lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer questioning, 2 spirited and plus (LGBTQ2+) and Allied youth, their siblings and children in Queer families." (Jesus Christ, that's a long list.) After checking it out, Nystedt decided to make a documentary about the camp, which he shot last year. Now, he's created an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help bring the movie to audiences.

"My initial reaction," declares Nystedt on his campaign page, "was that it was pretty cool that there was a LGBT camp in the area, however when I learned that the campers came from all across Canada because there are no other camps like it, I was amazed. Then I had to ask myself, 'why isn't there a camp like this in every city, town and village across our country?'"

Rainbow Camp's program runs two weeks. It focuses on leadership, team-based activities, and social change as well as swimming, canoeing, campfires, crafts, anti-oppression, and personal growth. Kids return to their home communities feeling confident, energized, and better able to live authentically. Check out the Rainbow Camp website at http://www.welcomefriend.ca/camp/.

Nystedt spent over two and a half years working with the founders of the camp and the Board of Directors to secure permission to document the experience. He now has hundreds of hours of footage, but all the post-production costs loom. Help Nystedt finish his film by checking out his campaign page at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/rainbow-camp-documentary-canada#/.
