The Boomer List: Timothy Greenfield-Sanders
NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Joel, Maria Shriver and Samuel L. Jackson — baby boomers all — will be among those featured in an upcoming PBS documentary about the post-World War II generation.
When Proposition 8 passed in California in November of 2008, eliminating the right for same-sex couples to marry, Americans were up in arms. Undeterred by the ruling, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, photographer and director of The Black List and The Latino List, and interviewer Sam McConnell decided to make a documentary on various figures from the gay community.
HBO premiered Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' documentary "The Out List" last month, in which a diverse cross-section of Americans share personal and professional stories -- both heart-wrenching and triumphant -- of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer experience.
Now, a companion coffee table book is available, featuring Greenfield-Sanders' portraits, text from the interviews by Sam McConnell and an introduction by President Obama's inaugural poet Richard Blanco.
