More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Be Part of a Showtime Docu-Series!
Regular readers of glaadBLOG know we've been excited about Way Out since we first read about it last December. This unique documentary series, slated to air on Showtime, will follow a person's coming-out process to a family member, friend or co-worker, with the cameras capturing the reaction from both ends.
Though the producers had initially limited the casting opportunity to those living in the Los Angeles area, they are now expanding their search nationwide, to tell the stories of those living in the heartland as well as on the coasts.
According to press materials, "The show will offer subjects a forum in which to show what life in the closet is like, to explain why they’ve chosen to come out now and to accompany them during this transformational event. The producers will treat the people profiled and their loved ones with the utmost care, dignity and respect and will provide a support system of counselors and therapists throughout the process."
