My name is Parker Sargent and I am proud to say that I make queer film.

Writing stories that explore people of every ethnicity and identity, I decided that the best way to see my visions become reality was to spearhead productions myself...with a strong cast of artists that help to bring my ideas to life.

ParSar Productions seeks out ways to celebrate our queer community, creating works that go beyond sexual orientation and challenge ideals of gender roles...education and entertainment that inspires our community.

The budgets may be small, but the efforts are immeasurable.

Our goal is to tell tales that entertain and illuminate.

While filming my first feature "Meeting Molly" it was easy to see how involving people that have a true passion for the project is vital to seeing the vision become a reality. The movie's message of determination and fulfillment in the face of adversity was amplified by the way the entire cast and crew came together to create the film.

Diving into my first documentary "The Panzi Invasion", I was compelled to tell a story of inequality and protest that has developed into one of the biggest festivals of drag since Carnival. The Invasion of the Pines has become an annual Fourth of July event in Fire Island, but it has a complicated history of activism that gave birth to this party over forty years ago.

As a follow-up of sorts, I made the short film "SNAP-Year of a Queen", which documents Emilio "Ginger Snap" Deluca's journey as HCQ in 2017. We followed him over the summer season as he raced around Fire Island in platform heels to open shows, cut ribbons at community events, perform at fundraisers and doing it all with his own unique flare.

My most recent project "Grove Girls" is the result of several years of interviews with the women of Cherry Grove. While often under represented, the stories of struggle, discrimation and truimph of generations of gay women is extremely important to our shared LGBTQ history.

Through my production company ParSar Productions, we are committed to seeking out unique and exciting ways to tell queer stories.
