In 1995, filmmaker Andy Blubaugh—then a curious and lonely fifteen-year-old—began a sexual relationship with Peter, a successful, deeply closeted man who was nearly twice his age. In 2008, Andy revisited this complex relationship in a narrative script, the writing and production of which brought him back in contact with Peter, providing him with the opportunity to examine how their lives had changed in the thirteen years since they met.

The documentary portion features interviews with Dan Savage, school guidance counselors, journalist Nigel Jaquiss and more.

WHAT AM I KICKSTARTING EXACTLY? The Adults in the Room has been invited to screen at the Ashland Independent Film Festival, Sarasota Film Festival, Frameline Film Festival (San Francisco, CA), the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and the Out at the Movies LGBT Film Series at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY. We are seeking final funds to transfer our film stock to HD format, do the final color correction, sound mix and titles.

HOW ELSE CAN I HELP? Right now, we really need money. But we also need enthusiastic web users. Post a link to our website The Adults in the Room on your blog, add us as a friend on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

And we hope to see you at one of our screenings!
