Young, Gay, and Christian . . .
A new documentary includes interviews with those who fall into the demographic
According to its website, Through My Eyes, a new DVD documentary, "provides an unflinchingly honest look at the role of today's young Christians in the gay debate: what they really think, how they perceive the church, and what they wish other Christians knew."
I was moved by the words of the teens and young adults in the trailer. The film was apparently "created for Christians by Christians" to help promote discussion in the church on this important topic. The website says the DVD "tackles one of the most controversial topics today with compassion and sensitivity, shining new light on the debate for people on both sides. It's unlike anything you've seen before."
The film was produced by The Gay Christian Network, "a nonprofit ministry serving Christians who happen to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, and those who care about them."
Here's the trailer:
