Short for ‘Generation Silent,’ this is an extraordinary documentary produced by award-winning filmmaker Stu Maddox. It follows six LGBT seniors and their surprising decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives over the course of a year in Boston Massachusetts. They put a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic: LGBT seniors so afraid of discrimination or worse, poor care in long term health care facilities that many go back into the closet.
