Gen Silent Film Screening



Bangs Community Center (70 Boltwood Walk, Amherst, MA 01002, Amherst MA)

In honor of pride month, we are screening the critically acclaimed documentary Gen Silent by Stu Maddux. This 2011 film follows the lives of six LGBTQIA+ seniors living in the Boston area as they navigate their identities, aging, and changing norms. This film highlights both the discrimination and liberation of aging LGBTQIA+ adults. Facilitated discussion will follow the screening of this deeply moving film. Local resources for older LGBTQIA+ members will also be available throughout the event. This screening is sponsored by the Amherst Senior Center and made possible by Highland Valley Elder Services.
