Fish out of Water is a documentary about homosexuality and the Bible, and how this pertains to marriage equality.
Fish out of Water is a genre-bending feature documentary that uses animation and academic interviews to dissect the seven Bible verses use to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination.

This month’s CU-PFLAG meeting will be Tuesday, September 27 at 7 p.m. at the Wesley Church on the corner of Goodwin and Green Streets in Urbana.
We’ll be viewing a short video call “Lead with Love” followed by discussion.
Here’s a little information about the video:
“What do I do if my child is gay?”
Lead With Love is a 35-minute documentary created to help answer that question. The goal is to provide comfort, information, and guidance for parents who have recently learned that their son or daughter is lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The film follows four families as they share their honest reactions to hearing that their child is gay, including the intense emotions, fears, and questions that it raised. Interviews with psychologists, teachers, and clergy provide factual answers to parents’ most commonly asked questions, as well as concrete guidance to help parents keep their children healthy and safe during this challenging time.
Come and join us. Please especially think about inviting someone who has recently learned that their child is gay.
