Gen Silent
Gen Silent is a 2010 LGBT documentary from award-winning director filmmaker Stu Maddux. Co-sponsored by the SSW LGBTQ Alliance and the Western Massachusetts chapter of SAGE, Gen Silent asks six LGBT seniors if they will hide their lives to survive. They put a face on what experts in the film call an epidemic: gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender seniors so afraid of discrimination, or worse, in long-term health care that many go back into the closet. Their surprising decisions are captured through intimate access to their day-to-day lives over the course of a year in Boston, Massachusetts. The film shows the wide range in quality of paid caregivers - from those who are specifically trained to make LGBT seniors feel safe, to the other end of the spectrum, where LGBT elders face discirmination, neglect or abuse. A brief discussion will follow the screening
