Documentary by 2 professors highlights trials of homosexuals – By Typhanie Sharfner

Two Palomar professors have released a documentary that follows the lives of three gay and transgender people and their struggle for acceptance.

Professors Pat Hahn and Gregg Baker have been making film and television shows for over 20 years. Their latest collaboration, called “Holding Families Together,” is a 30-minute documentary that debuted Feb. 26 in Hillcrest.

Hahn said the documentary profiles people’s fear of the unknown. “Ignorance leads to hate, but conversation is always helpful in these situations,” he said.
