Not even a second. Just a few stammered words. Again I can feel this
long forgotten fear. Violent, tenacious. In front of my computer
screen, I have just discovered this video made by a young teenager.
He is filming himself, soon he will tell his grandmother he is gay. He
calls. The loudspeaker is on. One ring, two, three. The old lady picks
up, the teenager breaks down.
Through a montage of compelling and
breathtaking videos posted on the Internet by young gays, bis,
lesbians or transexuals, Out makes us experience from within the
groundbreaking moment of their coming out –after which their
intimate and social life shall be forever changed.
