Breaking the Silence (Film)

    Breaking the Silence,” a documentary featuring the stories of some of Oregon’s LGBTQ service members and veterans. This groundbreaking film explores the lives of five Oregon veterans, who not only served their country honorably, but were forced to serve in silence and at great risk to themselves, their careers and their families.

    Nathaniel Boehme (he/him/his) has extensive experience working with veterans and servicemembers and their families in crisis since 2012. He has managed and developed programs and provided direct services to veterans and their families experiencing homelessness in Portland, Seattle, and most recently Los Angeles.

    He currently serves as the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ LGBTQ Veterans Coordinator and the LGBTQ Special Emphasis Program Manager (SEPM) for the Oregon Military Department.
