GET OUT! OF THE CLOSET!
Screening at Lawndale Art Center
presented by B & G & Lightfoot Productions and Zenfilm
Friday, April 9, 2010
A breakthrough in reality television, "Get Out! Of The Closet!" follows host Natty Ice as she crosses the country helping those struggling with their sexuality in a direct, no-nonsense, in-your-face fashion. She dishes out truth sticks - sticks made out of THE TRUTH - to each and every Closet CaseTM that she meets, inspiring them to lead a brand new life full of exciting opportunities. Natty emphasizes (through an intervention-style confrontation) that there's no reason to live your life full of shame, or more importantly, full of shame-rage. Each person that appears on the show is given carte blanche access to the life they could have - opportunities to say yes to themselves, to fussy meals and tight, expensive clothing - to explore themselves, their own bodies, and the bodies of strangers who share the same sex. If you, a loved one or even a casual acquaintance needs to GET OUT! And OUT OF THE CLOSET!, the bold new reality show is for you!
