Conversations about GOD and
struggling to be Gay  

Is religion something that only belongs to a few?  Taking a
secular point of view,  FISH CAN’T FLY explores the lives of
Gay men and women of faith as they recall their journeys to
put their sexuality and spirituality in harmony.  While the
whole concept of changing ones’ sexual orientation may be
viewed with a high level of skepticism, ridicule and even
humor by the larger GLBT community, these are the stories
of those who have tried.

Finding that their strong religious convictions and faith
seemed to be used against them, these are the personal
stories of people who have participated in “ex-gay”
ministries and found in fact that they did not provide a “cure
“…. the answers seemed to come from within.  The stories
they recall are sad, frightening,  poignant and yet
surprisingly inspiring and enlightening.  With less of a focus
on the "ex-gay" movement,  the film is more about the
telling of stories behind the debate and the role religion can
play in one's life.   During our lives, each of us embarks on a
journey to find our place in the world.  Being Gay can make
that process more difficult….being Gay and having strong
religious convictions can make it doubly hard.

The film contains candid, fascinating and heartfelt
discussions about God and being Gay.  There are even some
surprisingly humorous events in hindsight.   With the
current social and political climate, this feature length
documentary by award winning filmmaker Tom Murray, is
