Out in America, a one-hour PBS documentary event, will deliver a compelling, multi-layered portrait of LGBT Americans through their own words and experiences. The film will connect the common themes running through numerous personal stories about growing up, coming out, nurturing relationships, overcoming social and familial challenges, fighting discrimination and HIV, and achieving individual status and respect in America. From the bi-racial Washington, D.C. couple in their 80s who have been together for 45 years to the 19-year-old Puerto Rican boy from Harlem; from the 25-year-old raised in small town Texas to the transgender police officer in California, we’ll talk to lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender persons from across the nation.
