IN THIS FAMILY
What is it like coming out as a gay teen in the Philippines?
In a country imbued with traditional Catholic views, coming out is received with disapproval and anger, especially from one’s own family.
In This Family is a short documentary that looks at how one Filipino family reacts to having a gay son. Revisiting unreleased audio recordings of fights from inside his own home, documentary filmmaker Drama Del Rosario shares his story of being outed as a teenager, dealing with his family’s reaction, and the society’s percipience on homosexuality. Beyond coming out, the film speaks about how parents learn to embrace their children unconditionally. His story is one of thousands that needs to be heard and shared.
