Here I Am

Here I Am is the new 35-minute documentary that records the stories of gay and lesbian Christians – their coming out experiences, the reactions of their families and how they navigate between sexuality and spirituality. The movie also includes comments by a clinical psychologist, a church pastor and a theologian on the issues surrounding sexuality and the correct church response. Designed as a discussion starter for Christians, the movie is free to watch on YouTube and also at the movie website, Here I Am.watch. Here are the two links.
