Word Is Out

Thursday, January 28, 2010

“Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives” is the first feature-length documentary about lesbian and gay identity made by gay filmmakers. When it was released in 1978, it made a huge impact and became an icon of the emerging gay rights movement of the 1970s. Veronica Selver, one of the film’s directors, and David Gillon, who’s featured in it, are joined by Michelangelo Signorile, to talk about how life has changed for gays and lesbians in the three decades since “Word Is Out” was made. The film is showing at Anthology Film Archives January 29 – February 4.

Seeing Word Is Out was like coming home. I loved and love everyone in it and everyone who made it. To the film-makers: thank you so very much.

Is'nt prejudice a natural mechanism used by all species to promote species branching division and diversification by individual selection of mates etc.?
