At the end of an illustrious career, Col. Thompson presides over the military dismissal board of Col. Grethe Cammermeyer for being gay. What noone knew was that Col. Thompson was also a lesbian. So - why does Col. Cammermeyer call her a hero?
In SURVIVING THE SILENCE, Col. Thompson and her wife Barbara Brass candidly share how they wrestled with heart-wrenching choices in public and private, hiding their relationship in their own home, speaking in code on the phone during appointments to the Pentagon and abroad, and struggling to protect their love while preserving Col. Thompson's career. www.SurvivingTheSilence.com

In this award-winning film, openly LGBT elected officials at all levels – including the first gay US Senator, Tammy Baldwin – share their stories of self-doubt and triumph over multiple barriers ranging from race and poverty to gender and sexual orientation, revealing a deeply personal, rarely-seen side of politicians and gay people. Tho’ featuring politicians, it isn’t about politics: it’s about people who feel fear and shame, yearning to live meaningful lives. They reveal how they broke through internal and external barriers to achieve the future they envisioned and by showing that “anything is possible,” they impact people from all walks of life. www.BreakingThroughMovie.com.
