Today I received word that the movie Outrage will be showing at the Harris Theater, starting on June 19, 2009!
From fearless documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film is Not Yet Rated) comes a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the lesbian and gay community to which they covertly belong. Outrage reveals the hidden lives of some of the most powerful policymakers in the US, and the damage done by keeping secrets. It presents analysis from many prominent members of the gay community, such as Congressman Barney Frank, former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, and controversial blogger Mike Rogers – whose blog has spearheaded the movement to out closeted, anti-gay-rights politicians. This bold film is sure to stir debate, and perhaps make an impact on the continuing same-sex civil rights battle. (Kirby Dick; USA; 2009; 87 min)
This movie is sure to outrage you as the depth of hypocrisy comes to light. Southwestern Pennsylvania has three individuals alone connected to this outrageous conduct — none are politicians so stop speculating about that. Go to http://www.blogactive.com/ and see for yourself.
Kudos to the Pittsburgh Filmmakers for making this happen. I think this is an important film and hope you will make plans to see it.
Mike Rogers, btw, will be in Pittsburgh for the NetRoots Nation Conference in August. If you want to meet him, stayed tuned for the opportunity.
