Title: The Secret is out
Author: O'Brien, Sarah
Abstract: Family... what defines family is different for each individual. As we face a shrinking economy and difficult job placement, family is our primary focus as we get through the tough times. The nuclear family (husband, wife, children and dog) does not include divorce, extended family, aging family, or many other issues that trouble today's modern families. What if your family is not what society considers typical? What if your family includes gay parents or loved ones? With television shows like Modern Family and Grey's Anatomy, gay couples are more present but what are their real life experiences? The Secret Is Out explores the observations of a child growing up in the 1980s with one gay parent and one straight parent. This documentary compares the filmmaker's personal story to what children with gay parent families experience today. The filmmaker's exploration into the subject resulted in a creative odyssey that had unexpected results. Is the secret really out?
