Talana Kreeger

Park View Project

In Wilmington in 1990, 32-year-old lesbian Talana Kreeger was brutally murdered. Tab Ballis, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, has been working on a film to tell Talana's story for 10 years: Park View ("Park View" was the name of the lesbian bar where Talana met her murderer on Carolina Beach Road). The initiating director of the film was Ingrid Jungermann, former Wilmington resident who is now an award-winning filmmaker in New York. The soundtrack is by Wilmington singer/songerwriter Laura McLean

St. Jude’s Metropolitan Community Church was born 20 years ago out of one basic need:  to find an accepting place to bury the dead from Wilmington’s gay and lesbian community.  Amanda Greene of Wilmington Faith and Values reports how the church has grown and increased its focus on human rights issues.
