More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Fish Out of Water Premieres at Rhode Island International Film Festival
Director Ky Dickens teams up with Golden Globe music nominee Kaki King on the feature-length documentary, Fish Out of Water, to challenge often-quoted texts from the Bible used by anti-gay conservatives against LGBT people.
Inspired by Dickens own coming out experience, the film features an animated version of the filmmaker Ky and her biblical entourage as they take a surprisingly fun and insightful look at interpretations of Biblical text. Theologians and community members from across the country are also interviewed about why they want to open the church doors to LGBT people.
Fish out of Water received rave reviews at its world debut at Outfest in Los Angeles last month.
