Even with Pope Francis at the helm taking baby steps towards a more LGBT inclusive Catholic Church, there's still a long, long way to go before Catholicism catches up on sexuality and gender issues.
In a new short film from filmmaker Michael Tomae, practicing LGBT Catholics and their allies share their stories and desires to see a more welcoming church for all.
From the film's website:
We want our stories to be a part of the discussion because LGBT people have unique gifts to contribute to the life of the Church. We hope the Church recognizes that God is working through our life stories. We want to inspire change that will strengthen families, encourage acceptance of LGBT people, foster an inclusive community, and promote an open and accepting dialogue among Catholics across the world. Most of all, we want everyone to know they are loved and not alone.
