It is too common for LGBTQIA family members to reject their children, spouses, and other relations when those relations come out. This documentary chronicles the heartwarming stories of several families who have successfully redefined themselves in order to welcome and accept LGBTQIA members. Through interviews with the families, Rewriting Love will provide hope and concrete evidence that it is possible to redefine families to include LGBTQIA members and to navigate the coming out process in a way that doesn’t fracture family bonds, but rather reinforces them. This family friendly documentary is suited for audiences of all ages and identities.
The independent documentary film Rewriting Love is available for screenings at gender conferences, community groups, pride celebrations, in classrooms, for LGBT trainings, and more. Called “the future of sex education,” it is the perfect tool for your organization.
Closed Captions are included. Non-profit or small budget organizations hiring ASL or foreign language interpreters may be eligible for a discounted screening fee. All venues must be accessible (contact us for details).
