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

Worth Watching
13 May 2012 | by (Memphis, Tn) – See all my reviews

When my partner and I had the opportunity to watch this film last year at Memphis Outflix movie festival, I vaguely knew who Chely Wright is. I have never been a country music fan, but her story certainly intrigued me. Her story of her internal struggle is common among the gay community. But not only did she have to deal with coming out to family and friends, she was in the spotlight of the intensely homophobic world of country music. I found her journey to be often very sad, but in the end extremely inspiring. I even bought her last CD, which compared to her earlier work seems so much more heartfelt and personal. So, even if you're not a country music aficionado or not sure who she is....this story is well worth watching.
