COMING OUT~COMING IN gives voice to gay and lesbian Christians who have struggled to reconcile faith with sexual orientation. The interview subjects, all residents of North Carolina, take viewers beyond the current debate in churches about homosexuality to reveal the everyday efforts of faithful people.
The documentary is a collaborative project of the Wildacres Leadership Initiative, conceived and designed by four members of the William C. Friday Fellowship for Human Relations--Susan Acker-Walsh, Andy Baxter, Rev. Laurie Hays Coffman and Keith Martin--and produced by Minnow Media, a video production company based in Carrboro NC. Recorded in Durham, Charlotte, and Salisbury, North Carolina, COMING OUT ~ COMING IN is offered as a vehicle to start new and meaningful conversations among people who do not always agree.
