Country music star Chely Wright had a huge secret that seemed impossible to reveal to her family, friends, and fans. Raised in a deeply religious home and working in a homophobic country music industry, Chely prayed for years that her homosexuality would just go away.
In 2010, Chely began an arduous but carefully mapped journey of coming out to the world. Over a three-year period, award-winning filmmakers Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf captured every moment of Chely’s struggle. (Description courtesy of the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.)
