Dear Friends, As many of you may already know, our dear friend Andrea Meyerson is currently in post production on her latest documentary, CLAMBAKE. Andrea screened a work in progress unfinished rough cut of CLAMBAKE on Pride of the Ocean’s Western Caribbean Cruise this past March. The film offers an insightful, exciting, and humorous look into the 30-year history of Women’s Week in Provincetown, one of the largest lesbian destinations in the world. We have just found out that the film has been accepted into the prestigious Provincetown International Film Festival where it will have its world premiere! The festival takes place June 17-21, 2015. She is working diligently to complete it by the festival’s deadline, which is quickly approaching. Can’t make it to Provincetown in June? Would you like to support Andrea and her new film? How about Alaska in August? Andrea has graciously agreed to screen the finished CLAMBAKE film on Pride of the Ocean’s Alaska Cruise in August. Alaska has been Pride of the Ocean’s most popular destination to date, with many of Andrea’s WOMEN ON A ROLL members supporting her on the cruise. Andrea will also be joined by comedian Jennie McNulty, who not only appears in the film, but who will be giving an exclusive performance for Pride of the Ocean. As Andrea agrees, this is a tough road — making documentaries about our LGBTQ history and culture, but we feel it’s extremely important to document, preserve and share our important journey. It’s a blessing and a curse — but someone has to do it to ensure our rich LGBT history does not get lost or forgotten, and that generations to come will have a greater understanding and appreciation of the individuals and events that paved the way for them.

In 1977, Anita Bryant’s anti-gay campaign, the “Save Our Children” coalition was formed.
The next year, while living in Florida, Ronni Sanlo came out as a lesbian and five months later she lost custody of her two young children.
Ronni Sanlo will be in attendance on the ship when the film, “Letter to Anita” premieres on June 5, 2014, as will the film’s director, Andrea Meyerson.
“Ronni has been such an example of courage in the face of adversity. I’m very excited to see the finished film after having seen the work in progress,” said John Scagliotti, Program Director for Pride of the Ocean.
