When you think back to your own coming out process (or as you anticipate it) imagine doing it all on film for the whole world to see. Brooklyn filmmaker Alden Peters decided to do just that and the resulting feature-length documentary, Coming Out, out today on DVD and digital just in time for National Coming Out Day (October 11). Depicting each encounter with his family and friends, Peters shares his unique and yet universal experience with the world.
Coming Out has had a run on the film festival circuit and is sure to inspire many with its portrayal of courage. Having now founded his own production company, Casa Vera Productions, Peters has several new projects in the works and also recently produced a pair of powerful activist videos, We Are Orlando — Vigil at the Stonewall Inn and One Pulse: NYC Stands with Orlando.
Check out the film’s trailer below and look for Coming Out at DVD retailers and digital platforms.
