A call of faith and resilience in the fight for safe LGTBQIA+ spaces within the Black church from Emmy Award® winner Nneka Onuorah
The Black church presents many opportunities to establish ties with a community that can offer significant support, sometimes for as long as a lifetime. But for LGBTQIA+ folks, entering a religious environment can mean exposing themselves to rejection and constant vulnerability.
Emmy Award® winner and NewFest alumna Nneka Onuorah (NewFest27 Audience Award winner, THE SAME DIFFERENCE) invites us to join her to closely witness the activism of those fighting for safer spaces for LGBTQIA+ individuals within the Black church. Magnifying the voices of activist leaders, Onuorah’s documentary presents an unfiltered look at their experiences and emerges as a demand for both recognition and change.
This film will be followed by a Q&A.
