The movie has a lot of good qualities about it.  I know how hard it was for those kids to come out and put up with the discrimination because I was discrimanated against when I came out and I still go through the day and follow the way God wants.

Wonderful enlightening film. It is soooo sad that folks judge others on such old fashioned outdated thoughts. I am proud to say I am friends with alot of those in the film.  I hope that those with their minds locked closed have the guts to walk into a screening & not be afraid that someone will see them there. You should see the wonderful people they are missing out on.

I am so happy to see that a screening of Out in the Silence is going to take place in Oil City November 5!  I have heard nothing but good about this film, and look forward to seeing it here where filming took place. 

We are working very hard to change things for the better in Oil City.  My particular interest is the growth of an arts community here and my job is to welcome artists moving here from all over the country.  A number of these artists have expressed great enthusiasm for the film, and I know from clips I have seen that Joe Wilson and Dean Hamer beautifully capture some of the changes and struggles associated with that.  I can’t wait to see the whole thing!

This movie was shown on campus for students to watch. My english professor used this film as an opportunty for extra credit. If she did not use this film as extra credit I probably would have never went to view it. I was shocked. I knew that people did not like gays or lesbians or bisexuals but I had no clue peole were that out about it. The most influential part of this documentary was the newspaper headlines and newscast. The whole movie had a positive influence on me. I was happy to see that the movie did help to move this process of gay rights along and I wish you well!!! : )

I just watched the DVD last night, being born and raised in Oil City it made me so very sad. The words that were said in the editoral in the Derrick “you should have never been born” cut me to the core. Those words could have been written by anyone of my neighbors and that made me sick. Oil City is a cute town and there are things I love about it. I just hate the bigotry that is all over the place there. My best friend and myself will be watching Out In The Silence in Erie on the 21st. Great job!

I came out in high school, back in the mid-90’s. We had nothing like this to look at. My generation of queers didn’t have the benefit of Stonewall or some other such rallying point. We did have the 1993 on Washington and other wonderful events. But hardly a thing to unite us in a positive manner. We did have such harrowing events as Brandon Teena’s murder outside of Humboldt, NE and the beating and resultant death of Matthew Shepherd in Wyoming. Not exactly glowing moments for the gay community, but uniting factors. Documentaries such as this one should be able to help PREVENT stuff like that from happening for future generations. I hope to the Gods that people who watch this will walk away with a new perspective on life.

I would just like to start off by saying how amazing and how wonderfully done was this film in the aspect of handling this sensitive topic in a time of great uproar with in the diverse community. I attended a screening tonight at clarion university and the energy in the room during was that of respect and great admiration for this cause. I have nothing but the up-most respect for those who see a cause and go to great extents to help those in need. I personally have been a witness to bullying with in my high school and felt as if there was nothing that I could do or help. Tonight has shown that there is always something that can be done.I wish those involved all the best on your journeys to further the awareness.

thanks for showing the relationship that was built between you guys and my father and mother. not only does it show the willingness and love that you guys have but also that which comes from them also. it is refreshing to see hope like this instead of what you always hear from places like the afa.

What an AMAZING documentary! I attended the screening at MCCLV Friday evening, and it was extremely moving! Thank you so much for your courage, for sharing your experience, and for bringing this important documentary to a world that thinks it’s ok to treat people as less than human
