The first hour of the PFLAG Santa Cruz County (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians & Gays) meeting is dedicated to discussion groups followed by a brief break. The second hour will be dedicated to our January program.
God & Gays: Bridging the Gap explores the religious struggle reconciling sexuality and spirituality. It gets into the head, heart and lives of the people who have found homosexuality and the Bible as their self-defining work. The film wrestles through the eyes and experiences of people wanting a relationship with the very religion that rejects them – Christian (Lutheran, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Methodist, Baptist) Mormon, Catholic, Jehovah’s Witness, Jewish, Muslim and more. No matter the religion, the experience of oppression and repression is the same. Fortunately, many soon find it’s God that brings them out. A content-driven open and honest reflection of what it’s like to be gay and religious in America. Includes Rev. Dr. Mel White, Rev. Deborah L. Johnson, Jason Stuart, Mary Lou Wallner and Darlene Bogle. For more information about the film, visit: www.godandgaysthemovie.com
