Documentary Film "Out in America" Premiering This Month on PBS

Most (but not all) of PBS's major market stations will air the new documentary Out in America this June in honor of Pride month. The film, produced and directed by Andrew Goldberg, is an engaging look at the collective experience of being lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender in America as told within a collage of personal narrative accounts.  Through interviews with notable figures like Chely Wright and Andy Cohen as well as a number of other participants from all walks of life and generations, Out in America gradually reveals both commonalities and distinct differences in how members of the LGBT community realize who they truly are and how that awareness has shaped their lives. The one hour film's official PBS premiere date is Wednesday, June 8 at 8pm, though individual PBS stations will ultimately decide when to air it, if at all.  Currently, the film is not scheduled to air in Arkansas, Hawaii, Louisiana, South Carolina, Cincinnati, and a number of other major US markets.  Those living in areas where Out in America and films like it won't be screened for Pride month are encouraged to contact their local affiliates and share their desire to see it air.  Everyone else should check their local listings soon, as some stations will air the film starting this weekend and others later this month.  You can watch a trailer for the film below: Binary Data 2RssqtPVSp4
