About the film:
Out Late (2008), directed by Beatrice Alda and Jennifer Brook, tells the story of five different individuals who made the life changing decision to “come out”– after the age of fifty-five. The film explores the reasons and motivations behind their decisions to come out as lesbian, gay, or transgender later in life. People from across North America share the turning points in their lives that led to their open declaration of sexuality or gender, and their subsequent journeys in living their authentic selves in their communities both public and private.
