Product Description

{Winner! Best Documentary, Long Island Film Expo}
{Winner! Best Documentary, Cinhomo, Spain}
{Winner! 2nd Places Best Documentary, Kansas Int'l Film Festival}

"Out Late" is an inspirational and moving documentary about five individuals who made the courageous and life altering decision to come out as lesbian, gay, or transgender, after the age of 55.

Why did they wait until their 50's, 60's, or 70's to come out? And what was the turning point that caused each of them to openly declare their sexuality? From Canada to Florida, to Kansas, we explore what ultimately led these dynamic individuals to make the liberating choice to live openly and honestly amongst their family, friends and community, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

Review

Gives new meaning to 'better late than never'. A valuable film that could encourage young gays to live their lives without fear and secrets. --Joy Behar, Host of The Joy Behar Show, Co-Host of The View

I predict a straight audience will be attracted to this brilliant work, be instructed by it and recommend it to friends. I predict the GLBT folk will want this film to live -- well-- forever! --Phil Donahue

OUT LATE is a powerful documentary that reveals emotional, untold stories from a formerly silent generation. It's a liberating experience watching this well made film, for it teaches us that it's never too late to seize the day and live your life to its fullest. --Lauren Lazin, Executive Producer, MTV Networks

Format: DVD
The well meaning documentary "Out Late" covers a group of individuals whose stories might not ordinarily get told or explored. And yet, by no means, are the tales unique or isolated--just underrepresented. The five men and women featured in this hour long film all came to not only embrace the truth about their sexuality, but made the decision to come out and live openly despite their ages ranging between 57 and 79. Most had been married, had children, and lived full lives in some form of deception. They didn't have the openness, opportunities, and role models that we have today. But proving that it's never too late to be yourself, they have chosen to defy expectations and embrace the lives they were meant to live. It's hard not to take these lessons to heart and it is only through open expressions like this that the country's attitudes will continue to evolve in relationship to homosexual and transgendered issues. Some of the stories are impassioned, some exuberant, and some gently hopeful--but at only an hour, these are but brief insights into complicated lives.

The principles include:

Elaine: Came out at 79 in full celebration mode (seemingly inspired by the TV production The L-Word).
Ken: Came out at 72 for a chance at finding companionship.
Cathy: Came out at 57, after being in a 24 year same sex partnership, in opposition to unnecessary legislation.
Walter: Came out at 60, at church no less, and enjoying life in a solid and loving relationship.
Leanna: Transgendered at 60 after a life, including military service, in which femininity was longed for.

Each person gets approximately ten minutes of screen time with a brief introduction, a brief closing, and a primary interview section.

I waited until my husband was out of reach before watching this documentary. I knew it would touch me in ways that he would only find baffling. I was impressed by the variety of people describing the complexities of their lives surrounding their "secrets." How painful it was for them to hide for so long, often leading seemingly straight lives for over 50 years and then coming to terms with the passage of time as well as the twists and turns of coming out to friends and family members who had known them for so many years without suspecting. It was heartbreaking for those who were never accepted by their families and I cried when one fellow explained that he wasn't even told about his mother's funeral because his step-sibling didn't want him to "cause trouble." So many films/TV series and so much literature is available about young people coming to terms with their sexuality and their identity awareness; it is wonderful that there is something out there to show the side of seasoned adults still learning about themselves and how they, too, are evolving with their newly embraced lifestyles. Bravo!

I did not just like this documentary, I loved it! Society does not understand what it takes for someone to come out when there is so much controversy on the LBGT community. The folks in this film were closeted due to hatred of being who you are if it did not conform to society's expectations. I congratulate all five people for finally getting to be who they are. I am a grad student in social work and chose to view this documentary but this would be something for everyone to see, to educate themselves on the pressures and discrimination that this population has to deal with.

Presented as a documentary, it is very well presented with very credible characters and a work that should be made public on PBS and network TV.

One of the BEST movies on Aging that I have seen since Pride in June 2014. And best of all, it talks about the Older Generation, those of us who have for years hid in Closets because we lived in the years when being a homosexual was considered to be a mental illness that could cause you to get electric shock or even frontal lobe surgery. And it is told by the real people who have come out of the closet after age 55. Wish I could give it TEN Stars.

Wonderful ordinary men and women, people just like you and me, sharing their experiences of 'coming out' late in life. All 'of a certain age' will have compassion and understanding for their journeys, their questions, their honesty and their love. It would be so nice to sit down and talk with them all.

beautiful .. and clear.. to thou own self be true.. is never more poignant than listening to these beautiful stories.
There is only one message over and over.. and that is "wish I'd done it sooner"
Acceptance, love, companionship, joy, is what people want.. and the energy it takes to hide who you are.. takes so much out of the joy in life..
These stories are beautiful. The documentary was done well.
interesting..sensitive..
good to see the good, the bad, regrets, the triumphs..
yes.. some people lost their family and their friends.. however. they made new ones.. and built new relationships and the longing the fear .. the pretend.. is no longer so heavy.
gay, lesbian, transgendered.. some people understand.. and some don't.. some that still don't' "understand" .. still love and care for the individual.. and that acceptance is a beautiful thing.
