About the film
This award-winning 2010 documentary film follows the lives of six LGBTQ seniors who must choose if they will hide their sexuality in order to survive in the long-term health care system. The title of the film is a reference to the generations of older LGBTQ people who remain in the closet or re-enter the closet out of concern for their safety or quality of life.
