OUT RUN is a feature documentary that follows a transgender Filipina and a gay Kenyan man who fight hostility, discrimination and persecution in their quest to become their countries’ first openly LGBT elected officials. The film chronicles the rise of charismatic leaders in places where positive LGBT role models rarely emerge.
OUT RUN HUB, a companion transmedia project, uses interactive and innovative technologies to share compelling stories of current and future LGBT politicians worldwide.
Directed and produced by Johnny Symons and S. Leo Chiang
Co-produced by Eva Moss and Brittney Shepherd
