The Path to Healing
Healing those who have struggled with accepting their LGBTQ church membership and that of their loved ones.
"A Soul Cleansing: Black, Gay and Christian" is a documentary film highlighting the stories of triumph and tragedy of those who stand at the intersections of faith, sex and sexaulity. For so long the black church has denied and dismissed the personhood of queer bodies in their communities of faith. This has caused irrevocable harm to a large population of queer christian folk. This film will allow for LGBTQ persons (closeted and not) to share their stories and how they reclaim their faith and bodies in the face of harmful theologies. A Soul Cleansing film is supported by Columbia University's Center on African American Religion, Sexual Politics & Social Justice and Disciples of Christ' National Benevolent Association and a host of compassionate individuals.
Producer/Director - Andre G. Brown
