“LGBT seniors are going back into the closet because that fear is real. You just know when they don’t want you there,” says one elderly participant in a new documentary Gen Silent about the largely unreported issue of homophobic home care workers intimidating the people they should be assisting.

The show takes a hard look at aging in the gay community, where seniors are less likely to have children or close contact with family and in turn more likely to age alone.

Below, an exclusive clip from the show followed by the trailer, which airs November 9th on LOGO at 9 p.m. ET/PT:
