“Seventh Gay Adventists” – A Film About Faith on the Margins

Faith, identity and sexuality collide as three gay and lesbian Seventh-day Adventists are caught between the church they know and love, and their desire to be fully accepted for who they are.  One young man spent five years in “ex-gay” therapy trying to become straight, but now he’s falling in love with another man and wondering if that can be okay.  Another was a Brazilian pastor who was fired for being gay.  Can he find his calling again?  And a lesbian mom from the Midwest wants her daughters to grow up with her faith and beliefs, even though she knows her church might not accept their family.

This feature-length documentary follows their raw and moving journeys as they wrestle with deep questions of identity and belonging.  Is there a way to reconcile their faith and identity?  Can they find a spiritual home?  And what does it mean to belong when you find yourself on the margins?
