Like so many stories surrounding World War II where fact is stranger than fiction, Out of the Depths is a terrifying firsthand account of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis and the Navy cover-up that led to the bizarre court-martial and eventual exoneration of its captain. Marine survivor Edgar Harrell vividly describes the horrors of being plagued by sharks, hypothermia, severe dehydration and salt-water hallucinations, and the crew’s heart wrenching struggle to survive the greatest catastrophe at sea in the history of the U.S. Navy—a truly riveting story of survival, political intrigue and faith in the providence of God.

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.
Lord, hear my voice:
let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
Psalm 130:1-2 (KJV)

UPSTAIRS INFERNO Q&A with Ricky Everett, Up Stairs Lounge Fire Survivor – Dallas, TX Screening

Views:285|Rating:5.00|View Time:27:45Minutes|Likes:3|Dislikes:0
November 19, 2015 – UPSTAIRS INFERNO was excited to host the North Texas Premiere of UPSTAIRS INFERNO at the beautiful, Magnolia Theater in Dallas, TX. We had a SOLD OUT audience and were HONORED to have Up Stairs Lounge fire survivor, Ricky Everett join the Q&A after the film.

Ricky Everett was a regular at the Up Stairs Lounge. He often performed in the popular stage productions (“Nelly Dramas”) held at the bar. He was also a founding member of the New Orleans Chapter of the Metropolitan Community Church. He was in the bar as flames rushed in. He remembers the details vividly and praises God for saving him. In UPSTAIRS INFERNO, he methodically explains how the bar manager/bartender, Buddy Rasmussen led him and a handful of others through the panic and flames to an exit behind the stage, which led to the roof. Not seeing his friend on the roof, Ricky went back into the bar to look for him. He went back into the inferno with MCC Associate Pastor Mitch Mitchell, who was looking for his partner. Only Ricky made it back out.


As featured in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Advocate Magazine and CNN, the award winning documentary, UPSTAIRS INFERNO, chronicles one of the deadliest attacks on the LGBT community in America.

For over 40 years, it was considered the “Largest Gay Mass Murder in U.S. History”: On June 24, 1973, an arsonist set fire to the Up Stairs Lounge, ultimately killing 32 people. With interviews from survivors, family/friends of victims and witnesses, UPSTAIRS INFERNO vividly examines this oft-forgotten story and captures the power of unconditional love and forgiveness in the face of tragedy.

This riveting film is brought to you by award winning director, Robert L. Camina and Executive Producers behind “Back on Board: Greg Louganis”, “Raid of the Rainbow Lounge” and “Southern Baptist Sissies”.

The OFFICIAL UPSTAIRS INFERNO TRAILER (with over 88.9K views) is available at

UPSTAIRS INFERNO is the story of the Up Stairs Lounge Arson as you’ve never seen or heard it before. The critically acclaimed documentary takes audiences to an unforgettable emotional space unparalleled by the written word alone.

Despite the staggering historical significance, few people know about the tragedy. Nearly three dozen people were killed and some bodies were never identified. Countless others were severely injured. One-third of the New Orleans chapter of the Metropolitan Community Church were killed in the blaze, including two clergy. The primary suspect was never charged with the crime. The tragedy did not stop at the loss of lives. There were also the delayed injuries: lost jobs, fear, public ridicule and severed families. The devastation was compounded by the homophobic reactions and utter lack of concern by the general public, government and religious leaders. The fire permanently altered lives and was the root of many lifelong struggles.

With unique access (EXCLUSIVE on-camera interviews from survivors, witnesses and friends/families of victims) and a fresh perspective (incorporating long lost artifacts, newsreel footage and photographs that haven’t been seen in decades), UPSTAIRS INFERNO is considered the most COMPREHENSIVE, COMPASSIONATE and AUTHORITATIVE film about the tragedy and its aftermath.

Narrated by New Orleans own New York Times best-selling author Christopher Rice, UPSTAIRS INFERNO (96 min) is a mesmerizing mix of crime drama and human connections that captures the heartbreaking feelings of unconditional love and overwhelming loss. An unsettling snapshot of what was, until the early hours of June 12, 2016, the deadliest single event to affect the gay community in American history, UPSTAIRS INFERNO gets inside the hearts and minds of a handful of vibrant people who experienced one of the most important and underreported moments in LGBT History.

UPSTAIRS INFERNO is now available on DVD and Blu-ray. BUY YOUR COPY TODAY at:

This includes Frameline: the San Francisco International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, which awarded UPSTAIRS INFERNO with the Jury Award: Honorable Mention, citing its “Special Contribution to Queer History”.

Church Bombing Survivor Talks to Students

Views:1162|Rating:5.00|View Time:3:5Minutes|Likes:8|Dislikes:0
AVONDALE, Ohio (Jeff Hirsh) — If it happened today it would be called a case of domestic terrorism. But when an all-black church was bombed in 1963, authorities in the southern state where it happened barely considered it a crime. Today, one of the survivors of the infamous bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, told her story to some Cincinnati school children. Local 12 news reporter Jeff Hirsh shares her story and shows us how it had deep meaning for the students in the class. Memories of the struggle for civil rights, police dogs, freedom rider buses attacked, and perhaps most tragic of all, the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.When it went off it didn’t just go boom. It went boooommm, like that. Sarah Collins, now Sarah Collins Rudolph, was a 12 year old in church on September 15, 1963. Sarah’s older sister, 14 year old Addie Collins was killed, along with three other children, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, and Denise McNair. Thursday morning, Collins Rudolph told her story to the children of North Avondale Montessori School. A story of how Ku Klux Klan members planted the dynamite after planting hatred.I think they planted the bomb at night and I believe they wanted it to go off that night, but it went off in the morning. When it went off it scared me so bad because it was such a loud sound.Collins Rudolph was brought to Cincinnati by several attorneys from the firm Ulmer and Berne, who felt her story had to be shared.The first place that I thought of was North Avondale Montessori School, because my daughters all went here a long time ago, says Karen Imbus, who helped bring Collins Rudolph to the school. If you lived through the civil rights era, Rosa Parks, the march on Washington, the police dogs in Birmingham are images you don’t forget. But if you’re a kid today ages 11, 12, 13, these are just pictures from the history book. But when the history books come alive you really get a sense of what was going on But the message is not just about the past. It’s about the presentSarah Collins Rudolph was recently presented the Congressional Gold Medal by President Obama. One bombing suspect was given a slap on the wrist, a six month sentence in 1963 for possessing dynamite without a permit. But the case was re-opened in 1977 and that suspect, Robert Chambliss was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison. Another suspect was convicted in 2001, and a third in 2002 for murder in both instances.

For so long I carried the weight of my past
Cripple by burdens like stones on my back
I thought I had fallen too far from Your grace
But You came and showed me the way

When I was lost soul searching
You were the ground beneath my feet
When I was blind man begging
You were the eyes so I could see
When the smoke was rising up
You were the air that I could breath
You gave me hope you gave me something to believe

Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor

Now all I can see are the fields of your grace
Wherever I run your leading the way
You shook the shackles off my feet
I found redemption on my knees
You gave me hope you gave me something to believe

Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
Oh I’m a survivor

You’re my God
You’re my fighter
You make me a survivor

Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
Oh I’m a survivor
You pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
