Join Speak Your Truth Director Kris Erickson (and select cast members) -- and Yale GALA, Inc. -- for the New York City premiere of the new film SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Speak Your Truth is a new film about coming out later in life.  Be the first to see it -- at the beautiful Anthology Film Archive theater at 2nd Avenue and 2nd Street -- and join Director Kris Erickson (and select cast members) for a Talkback and Q&A and a fun afterparty. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Many lesbian coming-out stories look similar: we were in our teens or early twenties. We fell for our best friend or had a crush on a teacher. We had to tell our parents, our best friends, and our siblings. We'd felt that way for a long time but finally decided to act on it and be who we are. 

But there is a less common story, one that has a more difficult path and can leave a lot of heartbreak in its wake: coming out later in life. In our thirties, forties, even fifties or later. There are often marriages involved - children - extended families and neighborhood dynamics. Shocked schools and disapproving older parents and suddenly unwelcoming churches.  

Director Kris Erickson walked this path, leaving her husband of many years when she realized, in her thirties, that she was gay.  On her journey, she met a surprising number of other women who'd gone through the same thing -- all with variations in the story -- and in this candid and interesting documentary, we hear from many of them. Their tales are similar, yet always unique. Women who left husbands they loved (and in many cases still do), moved away from the children they adored, were cut off by parents or religions. and started new lives, anyway.  Through the layers, joys and regrets, you will see that each and every one of these women has one poignant, driving force: she decided to speak her truth.  

Yale GALA, Inc. is proud to co-host the NYC premiere of Speak Your Truth, organized by XX and Director Kris Erickson and co-hosted by XX (List in formation).
