June is LGBT Pride Month, and HBO is observing the occasion with the debut of a new documentary called The Out List. From acclaimed documentary filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (Thinking XXX, About Face: Supermodels Then and Now), The Out List debuts on the 44th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots – this Thursday, June 27, at 9:30 p.m.
The Out List is one in a series of documentaries Greenfield-Sanders has done for HBO about “identity, struggle and achievement.” Diverse subjects from various industries such as Dustin Lance Black, Wade Davis, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Suze Orman, Christine Quinn and Wanda Sykes are interviewed on a range of topics, including marriage equality (particularly timely!), religion, family and politics.
Alternately humorous and poignant, The Out List features intimate stories on raising families, gender and sexuality, building careers while out and reflecting on the challenges still facing the LGBT community.
The Out List is directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. It airs this Thursday at 9:30 p.m.
