This is a still from the gay short film, 'The Apple Tree'

‘The Apple Tree’ to become a feature film. You can help!

Every day hundreds of gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgendered elders are faced with the despairing truth of being isolated and discriminated against as they enter their twilight years. Some have completely denounced their sexuality in fear of being who they are, while others give up and sometimes even commit suicide after facing the fact that they must return into the closet.

Matthew Arnold-Ladensack’s award-winning short film,  ‘The Apple Tree’ deals with this subject. The short centers around Gabe, an elderly wheelchair-bound veteran who is forced back into the closet after his life partner passes away and he moves into a homophobic assisted living home.

We were thrilled to learn that the filmmakers have decided to turn the ‘The Apple Tree’ into a feature length film and they need our help!
