“What Goes Unsaid,” from the National LGBT Cancer Network, New York City, has been selected for the IQ One World Award. The production addresses disparities in healthcare for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons. A statement from the Network notes the film "exposes the well-intentioned but misguided attempts at connection with trans and GNC patients, coupled with frank monologues about their REAL lives."

This award is sponsored and selected by the International Quorum of Motion Picture Producers whose judges considered its message powerful and much needed for an issue that is worldwide.
