Steven Guy Solberg, filmmaker, activist

Steven began in film in the heyday of San Francisco’s 1970s counterculture, hot on the glittering high heels of Stonewall.

His current film project is
Standing on the Bones of Our Ancestors:"Exploring the Role of the Queer Tribal Elder
It is a work-in-progress documentary that illuminates the altruistic and spiritual dimensions of what it means to be a member of our (GLBTQ) Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, or Queer community and explores the vital need for elders to emerge in our communities.

The Glitterati, Protesting right-wing, anti-LGBT bigotry with glitter

Nick glittered Newt Gingrich, Rachel glittered Michele Bachmann and Joanna glittered the anti-gay marriage booth at the MN State Fair 2011. This protest style of “glitter bombing” is getting national press and the movement is growing ( it even made an appearance on the 2011 season premiere of "Glee").
The Glitterati group is committed to glittering the world and sending a message to homophobes and right-wingers that we will make them Feel the Rainbow until they Stop the Hate.
