Synopsis

A groundbreaking documentary revealing the complex and painful struggles faced by LGBTQ faith leaders as they confront entrenched bigotry and work to build loving support within their churches. Many queer individuals have quickly learned that rule changes don’t guarantee true welcome in their churches. In spite of growing fear and suspicion toward LGBTQ individuals, and transgender people in particular, a new kind of spiritual leader and movement for welcome is beginning the delicate work of winning acceptance beyond the wedding chapel.

The film draws timely attention to the joyful experiences and complex struggles of queer young people, the need for greater awareness and understanding of bisexuality, and the growing visibility of transgender individuals, offering a unique perspective on a trans person of faith. Out of Order offers audiences a glimpse into what it looks like to navigate this reality as a person of faith.
