This was my first meetup with GALHA and I enjoyed the film. It was a controversial subject but was handled very sensitively by the film-makers. Everybody was really nice at GALHA and made me feel very welcome and the organisers answered all my questions. I'm looking forward to attending more events :)

Inspiring story about how a small, self-effacing group of enlightened people were able to generate national media coverage against injustice and force education, tolerance and change.

Shocking to see teenagers forced into this kind of shaming by their parents. It was chilling to see exodus is now targeting even younger children. I can't help but equate teaching such hate and shame as a form of child abuse. Institutions that are supposed to be about living in harmony with each other, the world and doing no wrong sure seem to be feeding a lot of very negative emotions and fuelling stereotypes. It seems to be an agenda of hate rather than that of loving your brother man. People who use the bible in this way are not really taking the teachings of the bible seriously and are using it as a tool to spread their own agenda. The positive message that came out of it was that in these communities there are people willing to accept and actively support people like Zak. Even in liberal secular societies we have internalised problems about LGBT identities we don't need fundamentalist religious organisations spreading shame and hate.
