Pride Week's Movie Screening: 'Gen Slient'

Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 6:00 pm

Join UNI Proud in watching the documentary "Gen Slient." Gen Silent asks six LGBT seniors if they will hide their lives to survive. They put a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic: gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender seniors so afraid of discrimination, or worse, in long-term/health care that many go back into the closet. And, their decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives over the course of a year in Boston.
