HERE I AM

A documentary about LGBT people and families from Christian backgrounds

Coming out can be a difficult time for Christian families, individuals and those close to them. They often feel completely alone in the world. There can be internal conflicts, conflicts in relationships and conflicts with faith and beliefs. In ‘Here I am’, parents, children, partners, couples and supporting pastors and psychologists speak from the heart about the experience of coming out in a Christian environment and the responses. They discuss the importance of faith, the difficulties of coming out in families and the church, solutions to the problems, their best advice for others, and most importantly hope for the future.

    Thank you for such an informative video, I really hadn’t thought of the LGBTIQ “subject” affecting the parents, especially those within the church. I’m feeling quite humbled and very softened in my attitude to church people, so thank you.
