Before You Know It
dir. PJ Raval / USA 2012 / 110’

Cast

Robert, Ty, Dennis

Film description

The protagonists of Before You Know It are American seniors, who share little in common with their stereotypical counterparts, mainly because they all came out of the closet. To a greater or lesser extent, all support the American LGBTQ movement, but their individual accounts are the threads that weave into the homosexualoral history. In PJ Raval’s film, each seems to place the greatest importance on community and the fear of loneliness. Robert, Tyand Dennis all refer to the leading movement phenomena (Stonewall, AIDS, or the birth of queer culture) while relating stories about their local homo-communities. Contrary to common enthusiasm, they point to a lack of acceptance from the young generation – calling themselves invisible, they don’t understand why it’s unbecoming to wear drag when you’re old.
