Before God captures the lives of five families and their journeys across the rocky road of reconciling faith, sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity and familia in the current social climate which insists these are un-reconcilable. (Human Rights Campaign)

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, has announced the premiere of the film Before God: We Are All Family Oct. 1 at the GALA Hispanic Theater in Washington, D.C.  The film tells the story of five religious Latino families who have lived with the sting of repressive church teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity.

“This short documentary is a story of reconciliation and will be meaningful for anyone who has longed to find a way to bring together who they are, whom they love and what they believe,” said Dr. Sharon Groves, director of the HRC Religion and Faith Program.

“Familia – family – is at the center of the intersection of faith, sexuality and culture for Latinos.  This film brings these worlds together in ways we have not seen before,” said Lisbeth Melendez Rivera, national coordinator for A la Familia, a project under HRC’s Religion and Faith Program.
