Description

Iowa Premiere. Part of ScreenGlow, a showcase of LGBT cinema.

FREE Screening presented by Iowa City Senior Center and Johnson County Visibility Action Team.

These are no ordinary senior citizens...they are go-go booted bar-hoppers, love struck activists, troublemaking baton twirlers, late night Internet cruisers, seasoned renegades and bold adventurers. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans over the age of 55 in the United States, many of whom face heightened levels of discrimination, neglect and exclusion. A film about generational trailblazers who have surmounted prejudice and defied expectation to form communities of strength, renewal and camaraderie—whether these communities be affable senior living facilities, lively activist enclaves or wacky queer bars brimming with glittered trinkets and colorful drag queens.

"Raval's unobtrusive camerawork makes it easy to fall in love with these three." —Village Voice
