 Description: Produced for those congregations and individuals that want a relationship with the LBGTQ+ community, this very personal yet short documentary explores the connection between Christianity and homophobia in the wake of the 2016 shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Queer filmmaker Jessica Devaney grew up deeply immersed in Evangelical Christianity in Florida. After breaking with her youth experience as a nationally recognized activist and leader among conservative Evangelicals, Jessica left Florida and didn’t look back. She built a life that took her as far away from home as possible. Over time, her daily life became a progressive echo chamber.

The mass shooting at Pulse was a wakeup call. By avoiding hard conversations with church leadership, had she missed opportunities to challenge homo-phobia? This film probes our responsibility to face bias in our communities and push for dignity and equality for all.

NOTE: In the word of an IRMS Preview Committee member: “The short film may serve as a valuable introduction to discussions on inclusivity and acceptance. If we are to live with tragedies such as Pulse, we must learn from them.”

Age Groups: Young Adult; Adult
