This is a story about a woman in her time who rebelled with a cause. She is a woman “straight outta Compton.” Growing up in Compton, she witnessed demographic changes centered around "race." She was affected by the issues of the '60s that precipitated the advent of gangs, and the innovation of rap within Compton culture, and subsequently in the '70s she actively protested the Vietnam War. She was profoundly influenced by Robert F. Kennedy beliefs.
This woman is my Grandmother Kathleen Luke Martin.
Many members of the LGBTQ+ community are practicing Christians. They’re able to find acceptance and support through Open and Affirming (ONA) churches that have publicly declared that LGBTQ+ people are welcome in their ministries.
This documentary explores two of these ONA churches as a basis for explaining how a person can be LGBTQ+ and Christian. It expresses the value of these churches to the LGBTQ+ community.
If you or someone you know is looking for an ONA church to call home, visit GayChurch.org to find affirming ministries near you!
