2010, Stu Maddux

Thanks to one of our members who reminded us of this award-winning video resource. A documentary released in 2010, Gen Silent was filmed over one year as producer Stu Maddux followed six LGBT older adults living in the Boston area. The viewer follows them as they navigate the long term care system and face gut wrenching decisions about whether to be open about their sexuality in order to survive in a system that is not inherently accepting.
