Pink Houses (2005, 51 min, NR) documents an enduring love in the intolerant culture of the American South. The film tells the story of John Schenck and the late Robert Loyd, two gay men who experienced Stonewall and Vietnam, and now live in Conway, Arkansas, where they have encountered prejudice and discrimination. Schenk and Loyd achieved fame locally, not only for their brightly-painted pink house and for orchestrating many protests and gay-pride demonstrations, but also for maintaining a loving relationship that spanned the decades--the most persuasive form of activism.
Directed by a 22-year-old Hendrix College student, Jonathan Crawford, Pink Houses was shown at the Reel Attractions: Arkansas LGBT Film Festival and the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.
