LGBT elected officials from across the country including Tammy Baldwin, the first openly gay U.S. senator share their stories, providing a deeply personal, rarely seen side of politicians and gay people. The subjects reveal how they broke through internal and external barriers from self-doubt over gender identity and sexual orientation to the challenges of racial prejudice and poverty to achieve the future they envisioned. In discussing why they were compelled to run for public office and how they overcame fear, stereotypes and personal attack, they reaffirm that life's possibilities are limitless.
