In 2003, Gene Robinson became the first openly gay man to be elected to bishop in The Episcopal Church, resulting in both cheers of celebration from progressive Christians around the world and angry condemnation from the church’s more conservative sects, many of whom went so far as to secede from The Episcopal Church altogether. Bishop Robinson’s appointment touched off a movement that has changed the way the church relates to LGBT people, which has long been an emotionally-charged and complex relationship. Love Free Or Die takes a closer look at this relationship through the eyes of the man whose appointment found him at the center of the storm. Winner of the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Prize for An Agent of Change at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
