“A powerful and significant film.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
2010 Emmy Nominee – Outstanding Investigative Journalism
One of the most explosive films about politics ever made, OUTRAGE is a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians 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, the film 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, activists Larry Kramer and Mike Rogers, and openly gay congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, the film 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.
