OUTsider chronicles the journey of Ruth Marimo, who traveled from Africa to the United States, from abused wife to an out lesbian activist, from a life of fear to one filled with joy. Living as an undocumented immigrant, she details the daily struggles to survive as a health-care worker and to thrive as a wife and mother. Complicating matters, for decades Marimo had denied her true identity as a lesbian woman.
