WHYY and ITVS Community Cinema, in partnership with the William Way Community Center present a free screening of the ITVS film, Love Free or Die.
Love Free or Die is about a man whose two defining passions are in direct conflict: his love for God and for his partner Mark. Gene Robinson is the first openly gay person to become a bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom. His consecration in 2003, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir.
The film follows Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington's Lincoln Memorial to London's Lambeth Place, as he calls for all to stand for equality - inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to come out from the shadows and change history. Originally debuted in 2012 on the National PBS series Independent Lens, the film will be rebroadcast nationally in June of 2013 in celebration of Gay Pride Month. View a trailer of the film.
