Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this documentary special promotes the acceptance of the LGBTQ community by underscoring the difficulty that gays and lesbians face in revealing their sexuality to others. Same-sex kissing is visible, and occasional salty vocab ("a--hole") is muted. There's some drinking (wine) and cigarette smoking. Information about support services (such as the Trevor Lifeline) for the LGBTQ community is also provided.
Is It Any Good?
The documentary takes an honest look at the range of emotions that gays and lesbians must come to terms with when deciding to come out of the closet. It also shows how difficult and frightening the actual moment they publicly reveal their sexuality can be -- and how satisfying it can be once that moment is over.
The film is voyeuristic, but it also underscores how empowering coming out can be to someone who's comfortable with his/her own sexuality but is still struggling to be who they are in public. The documentary also serves as a way of reminding viewers who may be struggling with similar issues that they're not alone.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
