DC Queer Flix - The Believers

Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, 7 p.m.

Join us for our monthly discussion of LGBTQ cinema with the Mayor's Office on LGBTQ Affairs. For January, we will discuss the documentary The Believers. Starting at 7 p.m., we will all watch the movie at the same time on Kanopy using your library card number and discuss it together on Twitter using the tags #DCQueerFlix and #TheBelievers.

About the film: The Believers is an unprecedented feature documentary that shatters assumptions about faith, gender and religion. Built around the world's first transgender gospel choir, the film portrays the choir's dilemma: how to reconcile their gender identity with a widespread belief that changing one's gender goes against the word of God.
