For Barbara Brass, the sense of feeling different started as a child and would stay with her throughout her life. When she fell in love with Pat Thompson, a high-ranking military officer, she had to keep that part of her life quiet as well. SURVIVING THE SILENCE shares their story of building a now 35-year relationship in the shadows, being a part of changing military policy, and now living very visibly as they work tirelessly to be a voice for those who cannot speak as loudly.

I can’t wait to share the rest of this film with you! At a time when public discourse is so polarized, we know that stories like this -- and truly listening to them -- is what will bring our country closer together.

We’re so grateful for your support of SURVIVING THE SILENCE. No matter the amount, your tax-deductible gift is crucial to finishing this powerful film - the untold true story of two women in love and their part in changing military history - in 2019.
