What is the film about?
John, Mark and Marian grew up in the Seventh-day Adventist church, a worldwide denomination with 14 million members. They are also gay. Caught in the middle between who they are and a conservative denomination that teaches that homosexual relationships are a sin, they must choose between intimacy and the community they know and trust. Or is there a way to reconcile their faith and their identity?
People we've met
We met a young man who spent five years in a â€œchange ministry.â€ He only recently started to explore the idea that he might not be able to change--and maybe God is okay with that.
We met another young man who isnâ€™t out to his family and fears what will happen if/when they find out heâ€™s gay. Heâ€™s from a country where LGBT individuals literally face the possibility of persecution and even death.
We met a woman who is worried about her job within the Adventist church if itâ€™s known that she identifies as a lesbian.
We met a group of gay students on an Adventist campus who are actively trying to decide what God calls them to--must they be celibate? Or does a God of love understand their desire for a family? Theyâ€™re looking for answers and an earnest conversation.
