In the middle of Australia’s divisive marriage equality vote, Melbourne hosted a gala event to honour and celebrate its LGBTQ+ elders. These are their stories.
The Coming Back Out Ball Movie follows a group of older LGBTQ+ people, invited to attend a Ball celebrating their gender and sexual identity. Faced with the complexities of ageing and isolation, these extraordinary people seize each day with determination and humour. In a time that is rapidly changing for the LGBTQ+ community around the world, we witness some of our cast experiencing acceptance and love for the very first time in their lives.
