Directed by Elodie Edjang
Exploring the complex intersections and boundaries between faith, race, and radically inclusive love, Queer Christians intimately interweaves the stories and lives of three queer, Evangelical Christian women of color untangling how they define themselves from how their communities define them. As they reconcile the sacrifices they must make with the moments of joy that come with being seen and fully accepted for who you are, they wrestle with questions of what is gained and what is lost when you leave behind a home and set out to build a new one.
