Outrage aired on HBO last night

Did anyone see the much-anticipated premiere of Kirby Dick’s new film Outrage? It’s a documentary about the hypocrisy that is closeted politicians and public figures that not only live double lives, but actively working against LGBT rights. Trailer is below.

One of the biggest targets of the film is current Florida governor Charlie Crist, as well as former U.S. senator Larry Craig and former U.S. rep Edward Schrock of Virginia. From what I could catch of it, it was pretty thought-provoking – between the questions raised around the media’s outing of gay politicians, the power folks like Craig have used to take away rights for the purpose of staying closeted, and the feelings of extreme anger (but also sadness) that the film triggers. I haven’t seen much coverage of it on the blogs yet though. What did folks think?
