Out In The Line-Up
Being gay in the line-up has always been something you don't mention. Ridicule, threats, bashing and ostracism were often what was at stake. For the first time, members of the surfing community, both professional and amateur, have spoken on camera about this hidden side of surf culture. Former world champions are among the many surfers who have participated in OUT in the line-up, a feature documentary uncovering the taboo of homosexuality in surfing.
The film has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $30,000 by 13 December 2013 to secure funds for its release in early 2014.
