Explore the unique bonds queer and trans people form with spirituality, religion and divinity

Description

Institutional religion and the LGBTQ+ community are often treated as oil and water, but this collection of short films throws those preconceived ideas out the window. Featuring a blend of narratives and documentaries about gay angels, inclusive mosques, and an intersex rabbi, SHORTS: SENSE & SPIRITUALITY emphasizes that there’s room for all of our connections to spirituality.
