Abstract Ahmad is a 24-year-old gay man who is comfortable with his sexual identity. Neil is a 55-year-old gay man hoping to overcome a lifetime of hiding who he really is. This program accompanies the two when they return home with the idea of coming out to family members. Though their lifestyles are different, Neil and Ahmad share the same fears and sensitivities as they consider the impact their news will have on loved ones. Ironically, Neil is the one who eventually reveals his sexuality; Ahmad cannot bear the pain he imagines he might inflict. Filmed with respect for the feelings of both the men and those they come out to, the video provides a candid glimpse into a long struggle for acceptance and stands as encouragement to those in a similar place.
