As a portraitist, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has moved fluidly between the worlds of photography and documentary: his work is on display at The Museum of Modern Art and The National Portrait Gallery, and he's produced and directed eight films, nearly all of them in collaboration with HBO. His newest film, "The Out List," which will debut on HBO later this June, examines lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life in the United States--and the timing really couldn't be any better.

As a portraitist, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has moved fluidly between the worlds of photography and documentary: his work is on display at The Museum of Modern Art and The National Portrait Gallery, and he's produced and directed eight films, nearly all of them in collaboration with HBO.  His newest film, "The Out List," which will debut on HBO later this June, examines lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender life in the United States--and the timing really couldn't be any better.

"The Out List" follows Greenfield-Sanders The Black List Project--a trilogy of documentaries that screened on HBO from 2008-2010 along with a traveling exhibition of portraits spearheaded by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston--and his The Latino List Project, which screened in two parts in 2011 and last September.

In his new film, Greenfield-Sanders features interviews with prominent leaders in the entertainment, business and sports worlds to talk growing up gay, coming out, and pursuing a career while living openly.  Among the film's subjects are Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres, Cynthia Nixon, screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, playwright and activist Larry Kramer, New York City Councilwoman Christine Quinn, transgender advocate Janet Mock and singer Jake Shears.

"The Out List" premieres on HBO Thursday, June 27 at 9:30 p.m., marking the 44th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the 1969 police raid on a gay bar in Greenwich Village that in many ways began the modern LGBT rights movement.  But the film's debut date is fitting for another reason: June 27 is seen by many as the most likely date that the U.S. Supreme Court could issue a decision on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, California's marriage equality ban, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which bans federal recognition of same-sex couples' marriages.

In light of this month's historic significance, check out this dramatic new poster for "The Out List," exclusively on Thompson On Hollywood.
