Faith and Pride

  • Globe Cinema 617 8 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1H1 Canada (map)

Most of us have heard the argument that the Bible condemns being gay - but what does the Bible really say about it all? The unconventional documentary, Fish Out of Water, tackles the seven Bible verses used to condemn same-gender relationships and justify marriage discrimination. This feature film uses humour and original animation to make a traditionally complex and controversial topic accessible to those who don't like talking about religion and sexuality.

With slapstick animation and quirky interviews taken everywhere from barbershops to mega churches, Fish out of Water delivers a voice to the oppressed and informs to the misled. Most importantly, it sits down with hundreds of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender folks to impart their experiences with faith and sexuality.

Join us after the film for a discussion panel moderated by faith leader and activist Pam Rocker, who is an Affirming Consultant with Hillhurst United, Family and Spiritual Director with McDougall United, and works on reconciling faith and the LGBTQ community locally and nationally. Our vibrant panel features local religious leaders and people of faith from various backgrounds, as we delve inside the issues and personal stories that have been affected by this topic!
