Alternately candid, funny, poignant and heartbreaking, When I Knew documents a cross-section of men and women of all ages and lifestyles who invoke the exact moment in their lives - whether as toddlers, grade-schoolers, teens or young adults - when they knew, once and for all, that they were gay.
Inspired by the book of the same name by Robert Trachtenberg, award-winning filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) capture a wide array of answers to the question "When did I know?" through this inventive portrait of gay men and women, each remembering the unique experience that brought them to the conclusion that they would never be "straight." Though some of the stories are tainted with loss, most proudly affirm that embracing one's sexual orientation is key to being true to yourself.
