"Gen Silent" LGBT Film Event

By Charlotte Robinson, September 06, 2014
The Massachusetts LGBT group Flashback Sunday is having a special screening of Filmmaker Stu Maddux’s documentary “Gen Silent” on Thursday September 11th at Fenway Health in Boston. “Gen Silent” puts a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic; gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender seniors so afraid of being subject to discrimination or worse in long-term/health care that many go back into the closet. Their surprising decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives over the course of a year in Boston, Massachusetts. Barrie Atkin, 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.” The September 11th "Gen Silent" event is free & dinner is included. Dinner is at 5:30P & the screening will begins at 6:30P followed by a discussion at Fenway Health, 1340 Boylston Street 9th Floor Boston Massachusetts but space is limited & you must RSVP by calling 617.396.4926 LISTEN: Director Stu Maddux Talks About Gen Silent & More:
