Love the Sinner

  • LoveTheSinner

Love the Sinner is a personal documentary essay exploring the connection between fundamentalist Christianity and homophobia in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, FL. Queer filmmaker Jessica Devaney grew up deeply immersed in Evangelical Christianity in Florida yet ended up building a life that took her as far away from home as possible. The mass shooting at Pulse was a wake-up call. By avoiding hard conversations with church leadership, had she missed opportunities to challenge homophobia? Love the Sinner probes at our responsibility to face bias in our communities and push for dignity and equality for all.
