Though both communities claim to be motivated by love, the intersection of the Evangelical and LGBTQ communities is still fraught with suffering, anger, and heartache. The stakes are enormous regardless of one's perspective. Why is that? Why is there so little nuance? Why does it have to be us-vs-them? 

We're making a movie that explores the ramifications of living as an LGBTQ Christian through the eyes of Justin Lee as he speaks with both LGBTQ and straight pastors, liberal advocates and conservative theologians, the unwavering and the undecided. We're going to get people together of different backgrounds to hash it out, listen to each other, and push through the tension. And we're going to try to figure out what real love looks like.
