Description
Aging is a difficult process, but aging in the LGBT community presents different challenges. Director PJ Raval follows three older gay men as they navigate the last years of their life: Ty, an African-American man from Harlem who struggles with his partner's inability to commit to him under newfound marriage laws; Robert, a Galveston bar owner and drag queen whose bar provides a home for the Texas queer community, and Dennis, a recently out cross dresser who leaves his solitary life in Florida for a gay retirement community in Portland. Each story shares its own unique balance of hope and despair, highlighting the unique circumstances facing the aging gay population. Director PJ Raval scheduled to attend.
