Many of us must navigate our way between freedom and faith. With honesty, humour and heart these four films explore how tradition can affect our freedom to love and be who we want, while acknowledging the comfort many LGBT+ people draw from their beliefs. Taking us from an Orthodox Jewish community in Los Angeles to young Muslims in modern Canada, these stories offer snapshots of love, life and faith.
