Doc Soup, which showcases the latest Canadian and international documentaries, will present Outrage, a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to, on December 17th at Fifth Avenue Cinema.
Through his film, Academy Award nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) reveals the hidden lives of some of the United States’ most powerful policymakers, details the harm they’ve inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media’s complicity in keeping their secrets.
With analysis from prominent members of the gay community such as Congressman Barney Frank, former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, and openly gay congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (Representative, Wisconsin 2nd district), Outrage probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures, and much more.
