4. DVD: Out in the Open
With the first pro-LGBT president officially back in office and marriage equality sweeping the nation, the time is right to reflect on the success of those out, loud, and proud LGBT celebrities, musicians, and our allies. That's exactly the goal of Matthew Smith's moving documentary, Out in the Open, available on DVD through Breaking Glass Pictures starting Tuesday. Aimed at reaching at-risk youth around the world and their families, Out in the Open contends that no two people are alike and that all people should be celebrated. Featuring interviews with Carson Kressley, Greg Louganis, ally and Oscar-nominated actor Eric Roberts, and many more, the film sees each subject discuss how they coped with stereotypes associated with their sexual orientation, ultimately overcoming such prejudice to achieve their dreams. The DVD includes a director's commentary, deleted scenes, and bloopers from the film, presented in partnership with QC Cinema.
