I've written about the importance of Rural Pride Celebrations before - but if you want to see it firsthand, or if you ever wondered what the 2011 Montana Pride Celebration was like - well wonder no more.

Wet Paint Studios beautifully chronicled the event with this amazing piece of film:

You Are Loved from Wet Paint Studios on Vimeo.

From the Wet Paint Studios' description:

"You Are Loved" is a documentary chronicling Montana Pride- celebrating the diversity of all walks of life.

The documentary explores what it means to be an LGBTQI in Montana, a rural state of not even a million people. The response from the community in Bozeman, MT was overwhelming, and without it, this documentary would not be possible. Enjoy the show!

I hope the positive message of this event spreads beyond Bozeman to other areas of the state.

Montana currently retains its sodomy law, which can net a person 10 years in jail and a $50K fine. Recent efforts to repeal the law failed because of the fear and hate mongering of local GOP lawmakers.
