What a beautiful piece! I caught this at Sundance and it absolutely was my favorite film of the weekend. It was incredibly courageous and such a necessary catalyst for change. Hopefully the Mormon leaders will see this film and feel a need to listen to the voices of the gay youth sitting in their very pews.

I believe that this film will save lives. Our gay youth need to see this film and feel the much needed love and acceptance they deserve. My eyes were glued to the screen the entire time and my heart was broken but also given hope for a future of equality and acceptance.

I have no idea how someone could watch this film and walk away with a negative view of it unless they were just searching for a reason to spew hate. I enjoyed listening to Reynolds interview on NPR recently and got further insight in to the reasoning behind the creation of this documentary and could feel his sense of passion and determination. We need more straight allies to shed light on our gay youth and the unfortunate situations they are often born in to due to religion and family situations.

I'm looking forward to the film coming out on HBO to share it with my family and friends. Hopefully it will open up some of their conservative eyes and help them to see the sad truth of religious guilt upon our children.

What a beautiful film!
