The subjects in this are no ordinary senior citizens. They are go-go booted bar-hoppers, love struck activists, troublemaking baton twirlers, late night Internet cruisers, seasoned renegades and bold adventurers. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans over the age of 55 in the United States. This is not a film about gloomy realities, it's a film about generational trailblazers who have surmounted prejudice and defied expectation to form communities.

This documentary actually profiles (only) 4 gay men. In doing so, it seems to create the impression that all older gay men are either alcoholic, drag queens or closet cross-dressers. The sample is just too small. Aging is an important issue within the gay community — but this documentary isn't the right vehicle. It could easily have been cut down to 30-minutes and still have made the same points. Only found one of the profiles watchable. The rest of this documentary is just depressing, dark & dismal. Don't waste your time.
