From Queer Channel Media:

Last week, Roll Call reported that “Sheila Canavan and Michael Chandler, the documentarians who filmed former Rep. Barney Frank throughout the Massachusetts Democrat’s final year in Congress, have launched an online fundraising effort to help spread their still-in-need-of-fine-tuning project nationwide.”

There is no doubt this film is a work of passion for the filmmakers. Chandler cites Frank as his motivation for making the documentary, titled “Compared to What? The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank.”

Frank (D-Mass.) has become an icon in the LGBT community but not everyone knows he was also considered the smartest member of Congress during his many years there. He had an uncanny ability to focus with laser-like precision on issues of importance and then become the most knowledgeable person in Congress on them.


From the Oct. 22, 1999 issue of Lavender:
