Subject: “It Gets Better” film screened Sunday at 2:30
Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project was created in an effort to help LGBTQ young persons take heart for their future rather than ending their lives as in several highly publicized cases nationwide. http://www.itgetsbetter.org/
The Project’s recent hour-long video made for MTV was released this week. We will watch it together at the Westminster Presbyterian Church library at 2:30 this Sunday.
The video focuses on three LGBTQ persons. One is a high school ASB president who comes out to his inner circle and to the GSA and then leaves a coming-out letter for his parents at home. A second is a 20-something lesbian whose girlfriend comes to visit, sparking a “Let’s talk”moment with her reluctant mother. And a third is a female-to-male transgender person who is planning his wedding with his bride-to-be.
Won’t you attend and bring a friend?
All God’s Children (AGC) was founded to offer a safe space–especially for students–for open conversation on LGBT issues and faith. Programs include the telling of (usually first-person) stories, presentations by pastors and professors out of their study and experience, and the screening of documentary films. In the past, students and employees of universities, members of local churches, and residents of the larger San Diego and Southern California area have attended. All who come in a spirit of honest inquiry are welcome.
For the past four academic years, All God’s Children (AGC) has met almost weekly (except during some PLNU breaks) on Sundays, 2:30-4:30. Sessions are dedicated to an open discussion of LGBT issues and faith. Participants are asked to respectfully listen to and engage in a variety of contributions to discussion in a spirit of honest inquiry. Moderators ask participants to honor the announced program topic and to be courteous to speakers. The new church home of AGC is Westminster Presbyterian Church (USA), 3598 Talbot St. (at the corner of Canon and Talbot), in Point Loma. The library is one level below the upper parking lot and and on the same level as the lower lot.
