Perry Moore's Message About Gay Characters Continues On


Film producer and author Perry Moore, whose untimely death earlier this year shocked those who followed his career, will have his message about the importance of gay characters continued in a new scholarship.

Moore was a producer of The Chronicles of Narnia, and he had spoken out about the role of gay characters in fantasy fiction, especially comics. His novel Herotold the unapologetic story of a teenage gay superhero, and it won a Lambda Literary Award in 2008.

Blogger Michael Hamar reports that the Perry Moore Hero Fund was founded by Moore's partner, Hunter Hill, who found Moore dead at their apartment in New York City in February.

"Author and producer Perry Moore dedicated his life to spreading a message of tolerance and empowerment for all," states a summary of the scholarship. "Perry firmly believed in the power of the written word and its ability to change the world."

The college scholarship is open to "aspiring writers to support their artistic development and expression."
