We believe The Coming Back Out Ball Movie has the ability to highlight many important issues experienced by the aging LGBTIQ+ community in Australia and across the world.
The extraordinary people featured in our film give us raw insight into the challenges of ageing and what it is like to finally feel accepted after decades of social and cultural isolation. Bursting with humour and personal wisdom, each character's individual testimony offers us an opportunity for deeper conversation around the need for diversity in the aged care system and the importance of identity and belonging at all stages of life.
Through social impact, we aim to shift attitudes, inspire reforms in aged care and encourage a more equal and tolerant Australia.
