The documentary Coming Out will have a free all ages screening at the Mardi Gras Film Festival on the Saturday 25th February.
“Coming Out is a brave and intimate documentary in which Alden Peters records, in detail, his coming out to his close friends and family, and all the emotions that come along with that process. It’s impossible not to live each moment with Alden as we witness every minute reaction from everyone he tells.
For any queer person who has ever come out, this film will cause both heartwarming and toe-curling flashbacks. Adding a new perspective, the documentary also explores the role of the internet in modern coming out stories. Featuring several YouTuber’s coming out videos and framed around Alden’s own searches and activity online, we become strongly aware of how the internet can be both a welcoming and threatening public space for LGBTIQ people.”
