The new film Break Through from director Aaron Hose documents a group of passionate twenty-somethings within the Theatre for Social Change movement, as they unite in a stand against the stigmatization and marginalization of LGBTQ citizens in America.
Part human interest story, part dramatic interpretation, this uplifting film examines the importance of seeing your sexuality as only one thing that defines you as a person.
Having courage, self-acceptance and parental support is crucial for our LGBT youth, especially since we live in a society where many of them are still bullied for being “different”. Break Through aims to open the eyes of those who are quick to dismiss gay, lesbian and transgender issues as “no big deal”. Sure, things may be getting better, but being “out in the open” is by no means easy.
