Gay Marriage Controversy Unveiled…
Tonight at the Alamo South Lamar, we're opening a very provocative documentary that chronicles the controversial California vote that revoked the right for gays to be married. At the forefront of this crusade against same-sex love is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, known colloquially as The Mormons. 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION examines the role of the Mormon Church on this historic and much-maligned civil rights reversal, and the ties and conclusions it draws will shock and disgust you.
Shedding light on the structure of repression and shame that the Mormon Church has practiced against homosexuals for years, the film is a strong case against religious involvement in legal affairs and its destructive influence on the lives of millions of gay men and women. Its a highly emotional film that is not afraid to take a much-needed stance on this issue. It passionately fights against prejudice, judgment, and hate to present an educational and forward-thinking film.
We're very proud to co-present this film with the Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival tonight at 7:40 at the Alamo South Lamar. Advanced tickets available here.
