A Holiday I Do
An LGBTQ+ inclusive Christmas movie
Each Christmas, millions enjoy watching those lighthearted, Holiday-themed storylines with those
predictable happily-ever-after endings. In 2019, 70 new Christmas movies premiered on the Hallmark
and Lifetime channels-- none of which contained gay lead characters or storylines. That’s when A Holiday I Do was born. We are looking to change this lack of LGBTQ+ representation with an accessible, queer Christmas movie that everyone can enjoy! This not your regular heterosexual, non-diverse, cookie cutter Hallmark Christmas movie... we’re breaking new ground with this indie holiday movie.
"A Holiday I Do" is filming in Michigan in January 2022 for a Holiday season 2022 release.
What the Film's About
"Jane, a single mom and farm girl, is the best (wo)man in her ex-husband’s Christmas wedding. She is navigating a holiday season with changing family dynamics when she inadvertently falls for Sue, the wedding planner. As the big day approaches, Jane needs a Christmas miracle to save the wedding and rescue the farm."
Over 50% of our top billed cast are part of the LGBTQ+ community. We are proud to qualify for a ReFrame stamp. That means we are a gender balanced film with women in key positions. While there is no stamp for it yet, we are looking to feature cast and crew from the LGBTQ community as well.
Saving Young LGBTQ Lives
We want to give back with the film as well. 10% of the film’s proceeds go to support The Trevor Project to help save young LGBTQ+ lives. Like our friends at the Trevor Project, it’s our mission with the film is to reach those in the LGBTQ+ community who might feel not welcomed for the holidays. We hope that this film will give them a short escape and remember they are supported, loved, and accepted.
How you can get involved
We have completed our casting, but we will need background extras in Saugatuck, Owosso, and Ferndale, Michigan. **COVID vaccination is required for all onscreen talent**

We’re gearing up to film "A Holiday I Do" in January 2022 and would like you to be part of it. We want a community to help make it and see their names in the credits of this special film. We have our primary production funding in place and the film is going to be amazing, but are looking to expand the budget to make the film even more magical. While we know how to produce quality content on a budget, we want to be able to tell the story with least amount of financial limitations as possible, and having an increased budget enables that. Every single penny we receive will go to more gear, a larger crew, and increased production values.
