Piedmont Diversity Film Series presents the uplifting documentary "Out in America" directed and produced by Andrew Goldberg.
"Out In America" delivers a compelling, multi-layered portrait of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Americans through their own words and experiences. The film connects common themes running through numerous personal stories about growing up, coming out, nurturing relationships, overcoming social and familial challenges, fighting discrimination and HIV and achieving individual status and respect in America.
After the film, the Queer-Straight Alliance at Piedmont High School will discuss challenges for young people who are out or not yet out in America. This film allows audience members to view and share in the touching quality of the relationships shown in the film.
