A one-hour documentary about Fred
Karger's historic 2012 run for the White House was released Tuesday
film, titled FRED, premiere on July 14, 2014 at the
Sundance Sunset 5 Theater in Hollywood.
Karger is an openly gay activist who
was best known before his presidential campaign as the founder of
Californians Against Hate, which led boycotts against major backers
of Proposition 8, California's now-defunct constitutional amendment
which excluded gay and lesbian couples from marriage.
He also targeted the National
Organization for Marriage (NOM), which works to undermine the Supreme
Court's June 2015 finding that gay couples have a constitutional
right to marry, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
(the Mormons), filing formal complaints with state election officials
in California and Maine against both groups.
Filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel
traveled with Karger for over two years as he campaigned for the
White House as an Independent Republican to produce FRED.
