HBO & WORLD OF WONDER Present "WHEN I KNEW" PANEL & RECEPTION TO FOLLOW
Monday, January 21, 2008, 4:00 PM (Panel); 5:30 - 7:00PM (Reception)
Guests: Randy Barbato & Fenton Bailey (Directors), Robert Trachtenburg (Author), and Rex Lee (Actor)
Moderator: Anne Stockwell (Editor in Chief, The Advocate)
Inspired by Robert Trachtenburg's book, When I Knew, award-winning filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (Eyes Of Tammy Faye, Party Monster, and Inside Deep Throat) traveled the country asking ordinary people to tell their stories of when they realized they were gay. Through entertaining, insightful and moving interviews with over 150 people from five cities, the filmmakers captured not only the "ah ha" moments, but also moments when people first felt radically different from their friends and family. In a discussion with The Advocate's Editor in Chief Anne Stockwell, Bailey, Barbato, Trachtenberg, and Entourage actor Rex Lee will share their own personal experiences as they relate to the themes of the documentary. An extended clip of the film will be shown, and a reception open to panel attendees will follow the discussion.
