a film by Lily Daroff

USA/8 mins.

A man returns to Cleveland, Ohio, the city in which he grew up and the first place he was out as a gay man during the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. He is the director's uncle, and she says: "As a young queer woman, I recognize how lucky I am to be out in an environment where earlier generations truly paved the way. In this short film, I aspire to shed light on their bravery, courage, and dedication."
