Coming out often invites a bullet.
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I understand that this film is played at Gay and Lesbian film festivals, but until the advent of channels like Logo, it has not been widely available. Of course, being on Logo is not widely available either, but it is better because this film needs to be seen by anyone who questions why Gay Pride parades are held.

Bush is over in the Middle East, which was the focus of the majority of this film, preaching democracy. Of course, if he hasn't seen this film, he really doesn't under the wall he is up against. The fundamentalists in the Middle East are worse than the ones here in America. They imprison and torture GLBT individuals and encourage others to physically punish and, even kill, those who are different. Egypt imprisoned and tortured 52 men, even though there are no laws in the country against homosexuality. It was only through brave men like Barney Frank and international outcries that this ended, and it was many months. Most of those involved have fled to the US or Canada or other locations where they will not be imprisoned, tortured or killed with the government's blessing. You may be killed in the US, but at least it is officially discouraged.

It has been said that the poor in the US live like kings compared to the developing world, and LGBT individuals certainly have much more freedom, but democracy and freedom do not exist in this country either. For we are not free until all of us are free. If one group can be singled out for oppression, then it could be our turn next.

This film will help you understand, and it should be watched by all.
