WATCH: Out in the Open

A new documentary touts famous gays, straight allies and the virtues of being out

Carson Kressley and Greg Louganis are just two of the celebrities featured in the new documentary Out in the Open, a film by Matthew Smith about the power of coming out. In addition to spotlighting famous men and women who have opened the closet door, the film also explores the value of straight allies in the celebrity world. The director, who’s also an actor, had struggled with coming out after losing work in film for many years, which led him to this latest project asking how people identify and came out.

“I’m a big fat G [in LGBT],” says Kressley. “I’m as G as you can be.”
