With Falcon Studios, gay porn mogul Chuck Holmes built an empire on flesh and fantasy — the gay Hugh Hefner. From 1972 to 2000, Chuck fought the FBI, vice squads and an epidemic to document the emerging gay culture, and provide gay men across the country with a vision of life that was unashamed and celebratory.
Chuck’s business brings him fortune beyond imagining, and powerful friends, but when he attempts to channel his millions into a gay rights movement of the 90s, he finds that his money is sometimes more welcome than he is. SEED MONEY is the story of Chuck Holmes, one of the gay rights movement’s most unlikely pioneers.
