Dr. Gary Whitford Facilitates Discussion
Dr. Gary Whitford served as a discussion facilitator at the recent Film Festival on Aging, held downtown St. Cloud, sponsored by St. Cloud Technical & Community College, Whitney Senior Center, Tubman Elder Rights, and Central Minnesota Council on Aging. He mediated a conversation after the participants watched the film "88 Years in the Closet". The film was about Lorraine Barr, who kept her sexuality secret for 88 years until she later revealed the truth to Newsweek magazine in 2007. The discussion surrounded the controversial debate of if Barr was courageous and bold or if she was a coward, only coming out when nothing was truly at risk?
