"Outrage" is a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians with appalling gay rights voting records 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, the film takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted on millions of Americans, and it examines the media's complicity in keeping their secrets. With analysis from prominent members of the gay community, such as Congressman Barney Frank, former N.J. Governor Jim McGreevey, activist Larry Kramer, radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, and openly gay congresswoman Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin's second district, "Outrage" probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures, and much more.
