Overview

Filmmaker Luane Beck explores the struggle that Christians wage while attempting to reconcile sexuality with spirituality by speaking with religious leaders about their interpretations of the Bible, and homosexuals who have wrestled with their sexual identities their entire lives. An unguarded reflection on the challenges of being both gay and religious, God and Gays: Bridging the Gap doesn't shy away from more controversial stories, such as the heartbreaking tale of a fundamentalist mother who got her wish when her lesbian daughter committed suicide, or the woman who spent fifteen years in Exodus Ministries before awakening to see that her humanity had been steadily suppressed. Yet despite all the stories of separation, suicide, and sadness, it's the challenging concepts of acceptance and reconciliation that form the foundation of Beck's thought-provoking film.

    God and Gays DVD will touch your heart.

    This DVD will not only provide the information to start a discussion on faith and sexuality, but will touch your soul with the stories of real people who living their lives in a manner that will make a difference. Faith is a vital element of these Christians who stand for justice and resist bigotry and condemnation from those who claim to speak for God.<BR/>It is the first presentation in recent years where everyone is encouraged to Go to God for the answers, not just accept what is spoken by leaders with authority. Your life will be changed by the stories shared in the film.
