Summary Screening on SBS ONE, on the same day that Americans vote in mid-term elections, is Outrage, a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians with appalling gay rights voting records, who actively campaign against the community they covertly belong to. Directed by Academy Award-nominated Kirby Dick (Twist of Faith), Outrage questions the ethics of outing, and the mainstream media's complicity in keeping their secrets. Senator Larry Craig, who was arrested for soliciting gay sex from an undercover police officer, is just the first of many examples. Also included are former New Jersey Governor James McGreevy, who resigned from office after declaring his homosexuality and an extramarital affair with an adviser. Outrage acknowledges the reasons why homosexuality is a secret on Capitol Hill - if word gets out, you can lose your family, your job, your power, your seat in Congress. However, the program also argues that outing is justified because the laws and policies these people seek to make and enforce are hurting the gay community and in some cases - particularly with AIDS policy - are killing them..
