New York's Tribeca Film Festival will premiere director Kirby Dick's new documentary on the outing of gay and lesbian politicians.

Outrage looks at the lives of gay politicians who remain deep in the closet and actively support an anti-gay agenda and the damage they have inflicted on the gay and lesbian community.

The film includes interviews with prominent members of the gay community, including Congressman Barney Frank, former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey, gay rights activists Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile and prominent blogger Mike Rogers.

Jim McGreevey stepped down from politics soon after his public admission of being a “gay American.” He now lives an openly gay life and is studying at a monastery.

Mike Rogers is the man behind, a blog with a single purpose: the outing of gay politicians unfriendly to gay rights.

Producers of the film call it: “[A] searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States' most powerful policymakers, Outrage takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted [by] keeping their secrets.”

Outrage premieres May 1 at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
