Through a montage of compelling videos posted on the Internet by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth  from different parts of the world, Out makes us experience from within the groundbreaking moment of their coming out – after which their intimate and social lives shall be forever changed. Denis Parrot’s powerfully transformative film explores empathy, online and in real life, showing moments of solidarity, apprehension, and hope.  

Denis Parrot is a film editor, graphic designer, and animation artist. Out is his first documentary film as a director, based on the research and viewing of 1200 videos of coming out “live,” published on the web.
