Gen Silent

The generation that fought hardest to come out is going back in…to survive. Gen Silent addresses the often-unique issues facing gay, lesbian and transgendered people as they age and begin to need health care or assisted living. Facing the challenges of loneliness and finding caring providers is difficult enough, but “out” gays often must confront situations where discrimination can affect family relationships and community support. Gen Silent follows the stories of an activist lesbian couple, a closeted gay male couple, a single gay man and a 59 year-old transgendered woman. This award-winning film is helping change the pattern of care in families and organizations around the world.
