Storyline

After a lifetime of hiding, Chely Wright becomes the first commercial country music singer to come out as gay, shattering cultural stereotypes within Nashville, her conservative heartland family and, most importantly, within herself. With unprecedented access over a two-year period, including her private video diaries, the film layers Chely's rise to fame while hiding in the late 90's with the execution of her coming out plan, culminating in the exciting moment when she steps into the media glare to reveal she is gay. The film shows both the devastation of internalized homophobia and the transformational power of living an authentic life. The film also documents the conflicting responses from Nashville, the heartland and the LGBT community as Chely Wright prepares for an unknown future. Written by Anonymous

This film is so worth seeing. Chely Wright's story is told honestly and openly in a format that remains interesting throughout. The countdown to her coming out allows this documentary to have a sense of drama and urgency. The production values are top notch. I rented it on iTunes, but I'm looking forward to seeing it at the theatre so I can experience not only her singing in a larger venue, but the shared emotions of a large audience. One of the most interesting aspects of this journey is to see how a celebrity goes about coming out. There is a right way to do it so that the celebrity aspect can be used for good and Chely Wright shows how this is done.
