So here we are folks. Throughout last week I’ve randomly played Europe’s “Final Countdown” pumping myself up. We’ve prepped for this marathon for a while now, and now it has come to this point, the proverbial “gun” has shot off and the race to finish The Unique Ladies has commenced.
The Unique Ladies Documentary went live on Kickstarter. Accordingly, on Sunday we headed to San Diego to celebrate the launch with the ladies of the documentary at a lowrider picnic hosted by New Wave Car Club. Chuy, Carlos (my partner) and I passed out flyers and telling the other lowriders about the documentary and letting them know that we are here to represent lowriders in a positive light rather than the “ganstafied” fashion they often find themselves portrayed. And we are showing the lowrider world throught the eyes of women giving a very different perspective to such a gendered activity.
While there we were able to meet up other women lowriders in San Diego. While the documentary focuses on The Unique Ladies, I have interviewed and met with about a dozen women lowriders in the San Diego area. Each have a personal story for enjoying the culture and sport, and to honor them I want to have each featured in the lowrider calendar we are offering for the $50 donation level on our kickstarter. We have a few pictures posted so you can see!
Ok so we are now almost three days in and counting. Help us reach our goal and share this story with the world!
