Broken Heart Land

The documentary “Broken Heart Land”, explores the responses of a young gay teen’s suicide in Oklahoma because he was unable to disclose to his family and community his HIV positive status.

The film highlights the need for community acceptance and directly addresses the critical issues of HIV/AIDS awareness, lack of comprehensive sex education, and LGBT rights throughout America where those issues are still considered taboo.

A trailer of the film is here http://brokenheartland.com/trailer. Broken Heart Land had its broadcast premiere early in 2015 as part of PBS’ World Channel’s America Reframed series.
