Gen Silent LGBT Film Screening


On Thursday May 8th from 5P to 7P at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center there will be a special screening of the award-winning documentary Gen Silent followed by a discussion with the filmmaker/director Stu Maddux, cast members & national leaders about how this amazing movie mobilized a world-wide movement. This event is part of AARP's semi-annual convention, Life@50+ that runs May 8th to May 10th at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Barrie Atkin AARP MA Executive Council & Executive Producer of Gen Silent stated, “Since 2010, this extraordinary & moving documentary has changed lives around the world – helping build awareness of the unique challenges that older lesbian, gay, transgender & bisexual adults face as they age. Gen Silent is not just about the challenges of LGBT aging; it is a very important & “real” documentary about aging, period. It’s an important film for all of us to see, no matter what our age. Filmed in Boston in 2009, this documentary has truly mobilized a movement. Gen Silent has inspired audiences around the world to take action & received many awards for best documentary.” AARP chose Gen Silent as one of only three documentaries to be screened on Thursday May 8th. The 3-day program is filled with lots of fun events, seminars, celebrities, films & much more. Come hear Whoopi Goldberg, Captain Phillips, attend lots of workshops. A light supper/reception will follow the film. Admission for the 3-day program including the May 8th Gen Silent screening, panel & reception is half-price - just $12.50 with the code “PRIDE”.

What a terrific conversation with Stu about his film and about the issue of LGBT aging. Loved your NY story and look forward to seeing the film and poking around the Conference.
Thanks for addressing these issues...very timely for a lot of people.
