Dennis, Robert and Ty are survivors. They never had any children, and many of their closest friends passed away during the AIDS epidemic. No longer "young and fabulous," they have a difficult time feeling welcome among younger gay men. In spite of this, Dennis, Robert and Ty do their best to make ends meet and have a good time.
"Before You Know It" follows three gay men who face the challenges of retirement. Dennis, Robert and Ty seek love and community acceptance in the post-AIDS era. Directed by PJ Raval, and edited by Kyle Henry, this documentary addresses aging with humor, dignity and compassion.
While "Before You Know It" covers an LGBT subject, general audiences will find inspiration in universal themes. As "men of a certain age," Dennis, Robert and Ty aren't afraid to make fools out of themselves, and behave like their younger fellows. After all, why should age preclude anyone from having fun. "Before You Know It" teaches us all how to live life to the fullest, even in the toughest of times.
