LGBT Film For Children To Star Lesbian Moms!

Actors Mindy Cohn and Tamlyn Tomita are gearing up to star as lesbian parents in the upcoming short film, Operation Marriage.


Actress Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life, Scooby Doo) and Tamlyn Tomita (The Joy Luck Club, Glee) are attached to play two gay moms in Quentin Lee’s upcoming non-profit educational short film Operation Marriage, for children worldwide.


Based on Cynthia Chin-Lee’s children’s book, Operation Marriage is the story told from a child’s point-of-view about an eight-year-old girl and her little brother trying to get their two moms married before Proposition 8 goes into effect.


Operation Marriage represents the perspective of kids of LGBT parents rarely seen in literature or popular media. A film for children worldwide, it’s a universal story of family about LGBT rights, marriage equality, and having an alternative family.


While the film aspires to be a piece of art, it is also public service announcement and an historical document of a particular moment in time in world history. It is a testament to our past and continual fight for human rights.


The film is being produced through producer Alan Reade’s Text Engine Productions. Tax-deductible donations can be made through the artist crowd funding website


Text Engine Productions plans to produce the film this summer, and it will be released online for free in the fall for kids worldwide and for anyone to download it as an educational tool to advocate for LGBT rights, marriage equality, or forming alternative families.
