Plot Summary
Oscar-nominated documentarian Kirby Dick directs this shocking and passionate indictment of the clandestine hypocrisy of many closeted homosexuals in Washington, D.C. The individuals under scrutiny here are policymakers who have widely disparaged and worked to bring down the LGBT population, while hiding their own sexual identities. Shedding light on these realities, Dick also goes on to discuss the media's role in encouraging a neutral and at times closeted sexual orientation from politicians.

    Not exactly ground breaking news on some in Washington yet extremely eye opening at the same time. Just shocked Lindsey Graham wasn\'t mentioned. :)

    I don't generally like the idea of outing, but this powerful movie changed my mind. I admire Barney Frank's quote: "Politicians have a right to privacy, but not a right to hypocrisy."
