The University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Education, Health and Human Services, in partnership with the LGBT Older Adult Coalition/SAGE Metro Detroit, will host a screening of the LGBT documentary, “Gen Silent,” with a talk-back following on Thursday, Oct. 29. The discussion will include a couple who has been together over 56 years and married on June 26 when the Supreme Court decision was announced. “Gen Silent” is a 60 minute film that follows the lives of LGBT seniors struggling with harassment and closeting in senior facilities or with caregivers.
“I believe this evening will be a wonderful experience for all, whether you are a professional/provider, a friend, an older adult – or just looking forward to aging safely, regardless of your sexual orientation and/or gender identity!” said Judy Lewis, program administrator for the LGBT Older Adult Coalition/SAGE Metro Detroit.
The film will be played at 6 p.m. The free film and discussion will be at UM-D’s Fairlane Center South in the Michigan Rooms, located at 19000 Hubbard Dr., Dearborn. For more information, contact Jonathan Larson at [email protected] or 313-593-5052.
