ovari is the executive producer of “Saving Julian,” a film for and about homeless youth, particularly LGBT, who make up 40% of all homeless youth cases in the United States. The film is written and directed by Sekiya Dorsett, and had its world premiere this month at the International Film Festival Manhattan.
The website www.SavingJulian.com is a social media tool, which tackles various projects with organizations that provide services to homeless youth. The following appears on the website:
“We are working with Sylvia’s Place on enhancing their environment and providing supplies. Sylvia’s Place is an emergency overnight shelter for LGBTQ youth (under 24). They are there in the greatest times of need for many youth. For 365 days out of the year, Sylvia’s Place provides shelter and resources from homeless youth. They provide hot meals (dinner and breakfast); clothing; showers; case management; physical and mental health medical services; and court advocacy.
“We want to help them to continue to provide services and are launching our first project with them. We are looking to donate brand new cots, bedding, lockers and paint the floor. You can help in several ways. You can volunteer with us to paint the floor, or if you know of a company that can provide this resource, we are halfway toward our goal.”
Lovari released the album “No Holding Back” earlier this year, which reached the iTunes Top 100 New Releases Pop Chart and includes the Top 40 R&B singles “Keep It Movin’” (nominated for a 2012 RightOut TV Video Music Award) and “Foolish Beat” (infamously featured on the Perez Hilton website). His new single “Still In Love” is a duet with Anny Jules (Broadway’s “The Lion King”) and produced by JStaffz (Wiz Khalifa, G Unit). Visit LovariWorld.com
