Description: Gen Silent asks six LGBT seniors if they will hide their lives to survive. They put a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic: gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender seniors so afraid of discrimination, or worse, in long-term/health care that many go back into the closet. And, their decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives over the course of a year in Boston.
Gen Silent discovers how oppression in the years before Stonewall now leaves many elders not only just afraid but dangerously isolated. LGBTQ+ exhibit open prior to program from 5-7PM.
