HBO is airing Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’s The Out List on June 27 – the 44th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
“It’s straight-to-camera interviews like the [Black and Latino] List series of people, like Ellen DeGeneres, Larry Kramer, Dustin Lance Black, Janet Mock, Jake Shears and on and on,” Greenfield-Sanders says. “Very interesting people.”
Celebrities aren’t the only ones interviewed for the documentary and photographed for an accompanying book and Vanity Fair spread.
“If you had to sit down and say, ‘Here are the 15 people that I would put in a film about gay rights today,’ who would those 15 be?” Greenfield-Sanders asks. “It’s not an easy task. It’s easy to pick just famous people.”
