Before You Know It
Director: PJ RavalDocumentary Feature :: Voices
Focused on go-go booted bar-hoppers, love struck activists, trouble-making baton twirlers, late night Internet cruisers, seasoned renegades and bold adventurers, three senior citizens are also among the estimated 2.4 million lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans over the age of 55. A story not about cold statistics and gloomy realities, but 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.
PJ Raval is more recently known as an award-winning filmmaker than he is an ex-scientist, ex-vegetarian, born on tax day.
