Out & About (2016)

Out & About is a documentary that dives into the world of family members of LGBT’s in countries where being gay is illegal, or where strong stigmas exist. Of the entire social circle, it’s the parents in particular that experience the greatest dilemma, often feeling stuck between two worlds. They might even feel like they are ‘in the closet’ themselves.

Any parent wants their children to grow up in an environment where they feel protected and loved in order for them to develop into unique human beings. Yet too many cannot openly talk about their kids for fear of being discriminated against themselves, losing friends, or even jeopardising their own child’s safety.

Produced in Russia, Kenya and Indonesia, this 30 minute documentary will be used as an educational tool for parent groups all over the world.
