Summer has come and gone for the Mama Bears team! And we'll soon have loads of great news to share! 
IN THE NEWS:

*We are so happy to see the recent trend of narrative films that discuss and shed light on the harmful practice of conversion therapy. The Miseducation of Cameron Post is currently in theaters, and takes a look at a group of teens in a so-called treatment center in the mid-90s. You can watch the trailer here. The second film, Boy Erased, stars Nicole Kidman (based on a real life mama bear!) as the wife of a pastor who sends their son away to a conversion center. Check out that trailer here.

*Have you seen this New York Times article? It shows how a record number of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender candidates are running for office in November. Here's to power to the polls!
FILM UPDATES:

*Our update here is that...we have some huge updates to come! We hope to be able to share our good news with you next month. :) Until then, here's a lovely behind-the-scenes photo of our DP, Amy Bench, filming with young Kai. 

 
CREW UPDATES:

 *Daresha has now completed filming on the series of mini documentaries for Family Independence Initiative, whose mission is to help families escape poverty by empowering, trusting, and investing in them. They're editing these pieces together now and will have more to come there very soon!

*Daresha and Laura will be getting together twice in the upcoming month! Once in Texas and once in Los Angeles - the reason for these trips will be announced very soon! :)
MAMA BEAR UPDATES:

*Have you see the follow-up by HBO's Vice on Kimberly and Kai? The beautifully shot piece can be viewed here. And a big congratulations to Kimberly and Kai on their move to Austin!

*You guys, mama bear Sara went viral! Her recent Facebook post has been shared nearly 9K times! Check out one of the many pieces on Sara's story here!


 
What's new with you all? Shoot us a line and let us know!

xoxo,
 
Daresha & Laura
