Kirby Dick's ‘Outrage,’ June 5

TUCSON (Observer Update) - Meet Oscar-nominated filmmaker KIRBY DICK at a post-film Q&A on Saturday, June 6, 7:00 p.m., at the Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway for “Outrage.”

From Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Twist of Faith) comes OUTRAGE, a searing and controversial indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians with appalling Gay rights voting records who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States' most powerful policymakers, OUTRAGE takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media's complicity in keeping their secrets.

With analysis from prominent members of the Gay community such as Congressman Barney Frank, former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, and openly Lesbian congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (Representative, Wisconsin 2nd district), OUTRAGE probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of Gay public figures, and much more.

Regular admission prices will be charged for this special screening.
