“Word is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives” a must see documentary

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Really want to get the word out that Word Is Out: Stories of Some of Our Lives is now available on DVD. You must see this movie.
You must!
A restored version of this landmark documentary was screened at Outfest in LA in summer 2008 and was the most moving theatrical experience I had all year.

It features 26 people who opened up in front of the camera about their lives; their struggles, their quiet triumphs. What an eclectic group – wonderful group. All so different from each other.

Some of the stories were chilling: the man who was sent to an institution and given shock therapy after he confessed to his wife that he was gay; the woman who lost custody of her children because she was living with her lover; the woman who willingly spent four years as a teenager in a mental hospital in an effort to not be gay, and on and on.
