Out in the Silence captures the remarkable chain of events that unfold when the announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson’s wedding to another man ignites a firestorm of controversy in his small Pennsylvania hometown. Drawn back by a plea for help from the mother of a gay teen being tormented at school, Wilson’s journey dramatically illustrates the universal challenges of being an outsider in a conservative environment and the transformation that is possible when those who have long been constrained by a traditional code of silence summon the courage to break it.
*Out in Silence is made available here through HULU and can unfortunatly only be viewed within the United States. After the outrageous hatred and bigotry shown in the documentary and which recently happened in Coudersport, Pennsylvania as reported on Back2Stonewall.com I feel that it is important that this documentary be watched. Being hosted through Hulu with embed HTML codes included to the best of my knoiwledge means that sharing this important LGBT documentary video is acceptable and that no copyright infringement is intended.
