On June 27, 9:30 PM/8:30C , HBO will be premiering the documentary The Out List. From Neil Patrick Harris to Wanda Sykes, the documentary highlights the life of contemporary LGBTQ people. The documentary also focuses on non-actors, from LGBTQ teachers to athletes. In celebration of Pride Month, it is important to witness a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences, and ideas in order to better understand the diversity of the LGBTQ community. Visibility saves lives, breaks down barriers, and creates awareness. As we work to move forward as a society, it is important to recognize and acknowledge the past, present, and future of LGBTQ people. Representation, whether it is in a fictional film or documentary feature, creates dialogue, inspires others, and gives much needed perspective on the lives of others.
