VISIBLE is a groundbreaking feature length documentary with 30 subjects whose compelling and transformative raw portraits and narratives deconstructs what it means to be Caribbean, LGBTQ, and living in the North American diaspora.
Awesome little mini-series on LGBT history. Some of this was more basic and common knowledge, such as the Stonewall Inn, which gets some coverage on here, but there are more obscure little factoids strewn throughout, too, such as how television characters in general were molded around gay and lesbians in television and cinema before it came to wide acceptance in modern society. In today's times, being gay is a non-issue as we have come to learn and grow, but it surely is inspiring and awesome to know what people growing up in the 50's, 60's, and 70's went through as a gay person under McCarthyism. It really brings a ton of respect to those people. Definitely a very eye-opening documentary that I feel LGBT people should watch as well as those of whom are allies or interested in the long, tumultuous journey toward acceptance.
It's crazy to think in retrospect but these people were in jeopardy of losing their careers, family, freedom, etc for making their orientation known. To think people had to live double-lives to keep from being renounced from society, considered mentally ill or a criminal over who they loved. It seems kinda silly today, but these were the struggles many others had to face.
