Breaking Through

Available on iTunes, Tubi TV
In this ground-breaking documentary, openly LGBT elected officials at all levels and from across the country - including the first gay US Senator, Tammy Baldwin - share their stories of self-doubt and triumph over multiple barriers ranging from race and poverty to gender and sexual orientation, revealing a deeply personal, rarely-seen side of politicians and LGBT people. Tho’ featuring politicians, it isn’t about politics: it’s about people who feel fear and shame, yearning to live meaningful lives. In Breaking Through, they describe the conflict they experienced between the barrage of anti-gay messages they were forced to confront and their desire to live open and fulfilled lives.
