Kirby Dick, the Academy Award nominated film director for This Film Is Not Yet Rated, will soon be releasing a new film on the hypocrisy of in-the-closet gay politicians and the lengths Washington will go to help protect them even as they vote and legislate against equal rights and protections for gay and lesbian Americans.
The new film, Outrage will be released on May 8th but will be featured in the Tribeca Film Festival between April 22nd and May 3rd.
I haven’t seen the film but understand that it is powerful and pulls ajar doors that some key Republican political personalities are trying to keep jammed shut. Gay activist, blogger, and gay Republican outing-machine Mike Rogers — who nailed Senator Larry Craig (so to speak) — features pretty heavily in the film, and I’ve been told today that yours truly appears in it as well.
Something for your calendars.
