The screening will be at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge today Nov 6th at 2P. Openly gay Rep Barney Frank, a fierce advocate for our LGBT community, once stated, “I'm used to being in the minority.

Congressman Barney Frank gives credit where credit is due: to courageous LGBT youth who are coming out in ever-larger numbers, liberating themselves from their closets while at the same time liberating their heterosexual peers from their prejudices. Not every LGBT kid is in a position to come out—some are trapped in families and communities that are simply too hateful for a kid to risk coming out—but more and more LGBT kids are out and they’re helping to change the world.
