Gen Silent, LGBT aging documentary, streaming free

4:30 pm - 12/31/2011
Today’s LGBT seniors grew up under harsh oppression in the years before Stonewall. Many are estranged from their families and must rely on paid caregivers for assistance with mobility, healthcare, or basic life needs. But what if the only helpers available are intolerant, discriminatory, or abusive? Would you go back in the closet if it were necessary to survive? This moving documentary illustrates these issues through the heartrending stories of our community’s elders and the small but dedicated group of professionals working to provide them with compassionate, supportive care.
Run time: 62 min.

The movie isn't news but streaming for free is. Hope this is okay, mods.

thanks for sharing this. My mother works as a caregiver for the elderly, and has had a couple of openly gay individuals in the program she works for (it's basically an 'adult day care' program where elderly people who can't be left alone go for the day so their loved ones can go to work or even just get a break), so I know she will be interested in this.
