Wish Me Away, the film that documents country music singer Chely Wright's high-profile coming out gay experience, has won at Frameline, San Francisco's annual gay and lesbian film festival, IndieWire.com reported.

The film, which had its world premiere on April 15 at the Nashville Film Festival, was produced and directed by Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf, who together run TVGals Media.

Wish Me Away won the Frameline35 Outstanding Documentary Feature.

“When we started this project, we knew it was going to be hard,” Birleffi said last week at the film's screening. “We had the idea that the world would open their hearts with this film, that that was our guiding light.”

“The minute I decided to come out in 2007, the right people came into my life,” Wright said after the film received a long standing ovation. “I knew the [filmmakers] would handle this story with sensitivity. In telling my story, I know that I'm really 'just like you,'”

Last year, Wright, 40, told People magazine that she's a lesbian ahead of the release of her memoir Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer, in which she talks about her life as a closeted country music singer.
