Possible Media Opportunity for Someone Consanguinamorous

If you're in (or considering) a relationship with a cousin or other close relative, and would be willing to interact with media, you might be who Amy Lang, a Director of Development for a television show production company, wants to talk with. She is considering creating a television series, perhaps along the lines of a documentary-style show (although nothing is determined yet).

If you or someone you know might be interested, you can contact her directly:
Office phone: 818-563-1207

If you're too cautious right not to contact her directly, you can email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com and I can pass along your questions to her.

As we usually remind people when we pass along as casting call:

1) We don't vouch how you will be treated or portrayed. We're simply passing along the request.

2) Media producers understandably would usually prefer people willing to verify their identities and appear on-camera. It's up to you to set your boundaries as far as what you're willing to do. There are still places that criminalize relationships between first cousins, many more places that still criminalize relationships between closer relatives, and even where there is no criminalization there can still be discrimination and other negative fallout. California (like about half of US states) will legally marry first cousins, but Texas throws them into jail. New Jersey has no laws against consenting adults being together.

3) That being said, neutral or good portrayals are great visibility and help raise awareness and open minds, and let others know they aren't alone.

It's still very early. It's not like you are committing to anything if you contact her. On the other hand, if you've ever wanted to be on television, this might be your chance.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
