Film: Gen Silent - The LGBT Aging Film

OHSU's Center for Diversity & Inclusion will host a screening of "Gen Silent," the award-winning, critically acclaimed documentary about aging in the LGBT community. The 63-minute film asks six lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender seniors if they will hide their friends, their spouses, and their entire lives in order to survive in the care system.  Their surprising decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives in Boston area over the course of a year.  It puts a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic: gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender older people so afraid of discrimination by caregivers or bullying by other seniors that many simply go back into the closet.  The title of the film is a reference to the generations of older LGBT people who remain in the closet -- or re-enter the closet -- out of concern for their safety or quality of life. The film screening is free and open to all. For more information, contact cdi@ohsu.edu. Tuesday, October 28, 2014, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM. OHSU Auditorium. For more info visit www.ohsu.edu.
