It is with huge regret that we must inform our supporters that the Drag Dad project has come to a close and will not be completed. We have been trying to resuscitate the film after the subject’s circumstances changed out of our control, but we must now come to terms that we won’t be able to deliver a finished “Drag Dad” documentary. As supporters will have noticed, it has taken a long time to admit this defeat, as we have been attempting various other approaches that were not successful.
As the director I want to send my deepest apologies that this project did not come to fruition. It’s difficult to describe how heartbreaking it is to disappoint all of you generous backers who, like me, believed this story needed to see the light of day. I first began filming with James Ross, better known as Tyra Sanchez, in April 2012 for a film school project. I spent a few days with him discussing his life, his awesome son Jeremiah, his family, his aspirations and dreams. At the time James was a single father living in a small apartment in Atlanta with his 6 year old son, who James supported by performing as the drag persona Tyra Sanchez.
It was clear to me we had the foundation for a special and very intimate documentary about how non-traditional parenthood can produce wonderful results. James was immediately excited about getting a chance to tell his story in a raw and truthway way. I partnered with a producer and we launched a Kickstarter campaign to be able to film a feature length documentary of this kind. The response was beyond our expectations, with overwhelming support coming in from all directions. With our hearts full of gratitude and excitement, we set about getting the film into production.
Shortly before filming, James alerted us that due to financial setbacks he was no longer able to support Jeremiah as a single father. He moved to Orlando, where he seeked support from his family and Jeremiah’s mother, and was forced to sleep on friends’ couches until he got back on his feet. This was not an environment he wanted for his son and it was agreed that Jeremiah would live with his mother.
Though we were hopeful at first, these changed circumstances presented serious challenges in the filming of Drag Dad. James was essentially no longer raising Jeremiah, and in addition to this fundamental shift in trajectory, Jeremiah’s mother and James’ family declined to participate in the film. All of these factors made it very difficult to tell a cohesive story. With our Kickstarter funds we were able to film for several weeks with a crew of four, attempting to piece together a documentary in this new situation. With 70 hours of footage and countless months of unsuccessfully trying to piece together a narrative, we held on to the hope that this could become a “long form” documentary, where we would re-visit James and Jeremiah once they are a family again. That hope has dwindled with each passing month. With Jeremiah now living in Boston with his mother, 1200 miles away from James, we must come to terms that we cannot tell the story we set out to tell. This is the volatile nature of observation documentary – the subjects’ circumstances can change out of the filmmakers’ control at a moment’s notice. Sadly this is what’s happened to Drag Dad.
Although we are unable to deliver the most essential thing promised, the film itself, all our supporters should have received the other rewards promised, including the 20 page Production Photo e-Book from our filming (all backers), a signed production still and poster ($50+ backers), a “How To” drag video from Tyra ($50+ backers), and personal Tyra memorabilia ($500+ backers).
I can only imagine the backers’ frustration that their hard earned money has not gone towards a successful project. As much as we would like to refund the donations to the project, we are simply unable to do this since all of the funds were used in our efforts to make this film.
As the director I have received no compensation in my attempts at making this film.
While the filmmaker claims that people are receiving their physical rewards the majority of backers only reward was the film itself and their biggest donor also appears to be shit out of luck in getting what they paid for which included an executive producer credit on a film that does not exist.
The official website, twitter and Facebook for Drag Dad were all deleted after the email was issued.

I want my $10 back thanks.
A new skincare line called Marley Natural has been created with the participation of Bob Marley's estate. The beauty line will feature soaps, lip balms, and skin creams, and all of these products will be hemp seed oil-based.
But that's not all! Marley Natural will also be launching four strains of marijuana for sale!
The body care products were made available nationally on February 6th on MarleyNaturalShop.com. Residents of California can buy the cannabis; residents of Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Nevada will be able to buy the cannabis later on this year.

A media outlet recently exposed self-proclaimed 'King of Masculinity' and pick-up artist, Roosh Valizadeh, as being a 36-year-old man who lives in his mother's basement. If you are unfamiliar with Roosh, he makes his living by proselytizing controversial views about women to his paying disciples. Some of Roosh's opinions include: a woman's value as dependent on her 'fertility and beauty', women with eating disorders make the best girlfriends, and in one blog entry (which he now claims was satire) said that if a woman was raped on private property, it should be legal.
Well, the meninists were NOT happy about it. Apparently, Clement's opposition to rape and sponging off your elderly parents hurts their fragile egos so much that they've gone on attack, calling Clement a "cuck", "f*ggot", questioning the paternity of his child, and all sorts of derogatory schoolyard taunts. Here's a small sampling:
They have also been busy attacking any woman who expresses agreement with him, calling them ugly, whores, or a combination of the two. Clement seems to find the meninists' rage amusing and continues to retweet them and laugh.
It's so bizarre watching a gang of middle-aged babies throw twitter tantrums because a comedian suggested that raping and mistreating women is wrong, but kind of great that their backwards views are being exposed and mocked by Jemaine Clement and his followers.

This morning in Mexico City I was told I could not board my @aeromexico flight to NYC because of my turban. #FearisanOpportunitytoEducate #humanrights #dignity #lovenotfear
According to NY Daily News, Ahluwalia expected to encounter extra security measures due to the SSSS on his ticket marking him for a "random search". He went along with the extra measures that security had him perform until they asked him to remove his turban in a public area.
“That is not something that I would do in public,” he said to NY Daily News. “That’s akin to asking someone to take off their clothes.”
He was then told, despite the fact that he was invited by the company to fly first class with them and had no problem entering Mexico, that he would not be allowed to board the plane and that he would need to book another flight through another airline.
Aero Mexico has yet to comment.
Dear NYC fashion week. I may be a little late as @aeromexico won't let me fly with a turban. Don't start the show without me.

"This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive," he continued. "And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe....let's have decent, wholesome entertainment."
