The LGBT family "of choice" is a uniquely important lifeline and community support system. It is among the most profound legacies of LGBT life, illustrated by the men and women who came together to care for people with AIDS at the height of the epidemic. Today, a new health crisis is unfolding across America as LGBT seniors face homophobia, transphobia and insensitivity in the health care system.
With traditional support systems failing to address the needs of aging LGBT people, a new generation is called to organize care and community around its elders.
And we speak with the film's director, Stu Maddux, about the power of change.
