Editorial Reviews

On November 4, 2008 the voters of California passed Proposition 8 revoking marriage rights for same sex couples. The next day in Los Angeles a movement was born. Chronicling several people's lives in the wake of the passage of Prop 8, we meet several people from all walks of life, inspired to action in ways they never dreamed, to a conclusion they never expected. Experience the passionate rallies and defiant marches of the new gay rights movement as it swept through Los Angeles and ignited the world beyond. Intimate interviews reveal all the ways the movement comes together, and the subtle and not-so-subtle ways it can be pulled apart from within. Shot in early 2009, our cast is anxiously waiting for the California Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of Prop 8, and preparing for "Day of Decision." INSPIRED: THE VOICES AGAINST PROP 8 goes behind the headlines and propaganda to explore the real people who make up a movement. You will be INSPIRED.

I got a chance to see this documentary at a film fest, and it was eye opening. As a straight guy living in the midwest, I had no idea about the scale of the issues captured in this documentary.

This is the story about equality told through the eyes of the people that Prop 8 affected. Through series of interviews and footage of protests across California, the filmakers captured the frustration, hurt and anger that Prop 8 levied on the gay community. It also captured the feeling of hope as well. Hope that through protests, information and outreach that they can work to overturn the effects of the law. It worked too, and the movement is spreading.

As a supporter of equality rights, this spoke to me. Its films like this that are helping the movement of gay rights in the U.S. As one of the producers was quoted as saying 'You've never heard of a civil rights movement that failed. It just takes time."

I saw this movie at a few film festivals and it was really great. Having lived through the Prop 8 campaign in Long Beach and Los Angeles, I thought the film did a great job of capturing the emotion and anger after Prop 8 passed. I was impressed with the film's ability to capture diverse voices and opinions.

The documentary is raw, engaging, and at times funny. It's easy to watch, and a must see for anyone interested in the gay rights movement.

Inspired: The Voices Against Prop 8 is a must see. It is an amazing tool in political/marriage amendment work, but, more importantly, it is also a powerful reminder that the GLBTQ community is NOT just gay, white and male.
It really helped me to start thinking 'outside the box!'

I've had the privilege of viewing INSPIRED two times. Each time I learned a little more. As a straight senior female, I really did not know much about the LGBT community. INSPIRED has helped me to understand a little more. I never gave much thought as to how this community lives and what they are fighting for. My eyes and mind were opened. I now realize that we all pretty much are looking for the same thing - freedom to live our lives as we choose and equal rights for all. This film depicts how several communities came together in a peaceful manner for a common good. It shows how each group reaches out to others to determine the best way to present their views to the lawmakers.

I pray that the future brings full equality for all. The recent election brought a few more states forward. Hopefully, others will follow.

I am a straight man living in Long Beach, CA. I watched with baited breath in 2008 as the results of the presidential election and the state propositions came funneling into my live internet stream. There were a few things I cared about, most not revelvant to this review.

When Prop 8 was approved by the voting masses, the celebration of a promising new presidency in our country; the unbridled joy was circumvented by something that I thought was a shoe in for our great state of CA. Hours later, there were hundreds if not thousands of people marching down my street; signs in hand, megaphones, children on shoulders, ordinary effing people, man. This wasn't some focus group of semi-well organized 'doers'. These were real people: partisan, non-partisan, straight, gay, lesbian, trans-gender, drunks who got swept up in the moment--these were people that understood their family, friends and neighbors had just been denied a very basic civil right.

Remove all of the supernatural from the Christian bible our country holds so dear. All of the misinterpreted hate. And we have something. We have equality. The current lack of equality will be looked at with scorn and quiet disbelief by our grand-children--just as as the struggle women and races other than old caucasian men have faced for centuries.

I was fortunate to see "Inspired: The Voices Against Prop 8" in a theater. With friends. And strangers. The quality of the 'found footage' editing craftsmanship, motion-graphics and narrative were superb. Film festival level. And beyond. This isn't JUST a labor of love. It's a labor of what love should be. There is a last frontier of civil rights that is slowly being conquered. And I have no doubt that that it will be. I look forward to that day.

I commend everyone involved in this the little BIG production. You made something out of what too many perceive as nothing.

I still remember the shock and bewilderment that totally enveloped me on November 4th, 2008. Watching the election results come in from my living room in the trendy Miracle Mile area of Los Angeles, I was astonished that such a discriminatory constitutional amendment such as Prop 8 could even remotely pass in such a "liberal" state as California. My shock turned to disappointment, my disappointment turned to anger, and my anger turned into action as I immediately found myself thrust into activism for equality/civil rights for the LGBTQ community. Thanks to director Charlie Gage, I found those raw emotions resurfacing in this remarkable documentary film that showcases the awakening of a "sleeping giant" in California... the LGBTQ movement. Showcasing various interviews and raw footage from throughout San Diego to San Francisco, Charlie Gage places the viewer directly in the middle of the Prop 8 drama and aftermath , whereas the viewer experiences the reaction and launch of various LGBTQ organizations throughout the Golden State as Gays and Lesbians found their civil right of marriage equality ripped from them at the hands of California voters. This documentary is most-definitely a MUST SEE!
