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

Did You Know?


Chely Wright: I've been having a problem with my editor. We've been going through pictures that we're putting in the book, and she held up a picture of me from the cover of that swimsuit thing. She held it up and said "What were you thinking?" I said, Pardon? She said "Well it's clear that you're playing to a lie here. I said, Playing to a lie? She said "Well it's clear you did this to pretend to be straight." I said, No, I wasn't playing straight, I was playing sensual, I was playing sexy. I can be that, ...

An incredibly moving coming out story of the popular country western singer, Chely Wright
12 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Chely lets the audience into her personal journey of publicly acknowledging that she is a lesbian. It's a story of doubt, anguish, rejection, courage, acceptance, and joy ... a beautiful story that draws you into this emotional coming out story of a celebrity who knows that this decision will exact a price on her singing/professional career. Unknown to Chely during this process is the magnificent affect her courage will have on those hundreds and thousands of youth who will find strength in her story. This is a must see especially if you have a friend or loved one who is part of the LGBT community. For those who have already experienced their own coming out journey, this story will make your heart soar with pride as you watch her story unfold.
