What People are saying about the screening of GenSilent Gay Elders Going Back in the Closet
If you missed last weeks screening of GenSilent, you have another opportunity to catch it!
- The film was extremely touching and portrayed many of the relevant issues faced by LGBT elders today. The layout of the venue and the projector made it difficult to catch all of the dialogue at times.
- Very timely discussion
- I think this movie should be shown in GLBT organizations or through The Center on U Street. Would be a great way to begin discussions about what we in the communities need.
- This was a moving documentary about a troubling situation. I hope we can develop senior services that are welcoming to all.
- Really enjoyed this movie!!!
- I am a Gerontology major at UMUC and had to attend this screening as part of my internship; it really opened my eyes. I would always be grateful for the subject matter presented because it was an area I never thought of. Now I can be more inclusive as I continue my studies and work in this area. The stories presented were heart-breaking for me also.
- Gen Silent is a very valuable awareness and education tool. We usually tend to mind the young GLBT population. This commendable documentary effectively puts the aging GLBT folks up front and center stage.
