The Coming Back Out Ball Movie

The Coming Back Out Ball Movie

Australian documentary following a group of older LGBTI+ people as they prepare to attend a ball celebrating their identity.

"Director Sue Thomson documents the process as All The Queens Men puts the event together and – most importantly – captures the stories of key elders being honoured at the Ball. The resulting film, supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, is a life-affirming love letter to senior members of the ‘alphabet’ community, and to Melbourne, with an important message about the necessity of pride, acceptance, equality and dignity at all stages of life – and a whole lot of dancing!" (Melbourne International Film Festival)

It was entirely accidental and yet very fortuitous that I sat down to watch Sue Thompson’s The Coming Back Out Ball Movie on World AIDS Day. Observed on December the 1st, and this year marking its 30th anniversary, it is a way of raising awareness of the still prevalent disease and commemorate the 35 million people who have died from complications with AIDS since its first known detection in 1981.

The ball itself is a triumph, capped by the result of the same-sex marriage vote two days later, and this funny, joyous and very human film stands as a rousing tribute to the difference it should make to so many lives.
