This documentary highlights openly LGBT elected officials at all levels, from the first openly gay US Senator to the first transgendered judge to Fort Worth’s first openly gay city councilman, Joel Burns.Though featuring politicians, it isn't about politics. It's about people who feel fear and shame and yearn to live meaningful lives amidst anti-gay messages. They reveal how they broke through barriers internally – daring to believe something different than what they were told – and then externally as they pursued and achieved the future they envisioned. Showing what is possible, they give hope to struggling people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
