With Falcon Studios, gay porn mogul Chuck Holmes built an empire on flesh and fantasy. Chuck fought against the FBI, vice squads and an AIDS epidemic in order to document emerging gay culture and provide homosexual men across the country with a vision of life that was unashamed and celebratory. Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story is the story of one of the gay rights movement’s more unlikely – and spirited – pioneers. Released in 2015 and directed by Michael Stabile, the documentary features Jeff Stryker, Chi Chi LaRue, Steve Cruz, Tom Chase and legendary filmmaker John Waters.
