When Fred Karger began running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in February 2010, filmmaker John Fitzgerald Keitel was at his side. John spent the next two years documenting his historic campaign as the first openly gay candidate for president from either major political party. Now a one-hour documentary, FRED is out and gives audiences an inside look at the roller coaster campaign. Follow Fred from the towns of New Hampshire to the Iowa State Fair. Watch as he takes on Fox News and Mitt Romney. See the reaction from Republican rank and file voters to any openly gay GOP candidate as he campaigns from New Orleans to New York, from Gay Pride Parades to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. Watch as he fights for inclusion in the debates, takes on his opponents and campaigns to let lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans know that anything is possible. Fred will take questions and provide an inside look at Presidential Campaigns. 

Co-hosted by College Republicans and Rockefeller Center.
