Documentary and Discussion about Aging while LGBTQ, “Gen Silent”

“The generation that fought hardest to come out, is going back in – to survive.”

About this Event

Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary, Gen Silent.

This award-winning film follows a handful of LGBTQ people as they navigate their identities in a long-term care system that isn’t always accepting.

Following the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker and a panel of Shropshire area LGBTQ aging advocates, who will share how they are making it a safer place to age without discrimination.

This screening is co-presented by Safe Aging No Discrimination andAgeUK, Shropshire Telford & Wrekin.

During the event we will be giving a ‘sneak preview’ of our upcoming film, All The Lonely People. This film examines the growing epidemic of isolation and loneliness. Much of the film is shot across Shropshire and other parts of the West Midlands!

The Event:

Introduction by Filmmaker & Producer, Joseph Applebaum.

Film screening (1 hr)

Discussion and Q&A w/ Filmmaker & Director, Stu Maddux, Heather Osborne, CEO AgeUK Shropshire Telford and Wrekin and SAND founder, Sue Grobing

The event is free, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds help us continue our social-impact filmmaking and the completion of, All The Lonely People. Because of COVID-19 we are currently placing cameras in the hands of our film participants to safely capture their experience in isolation.
