Out This Week: Same-Sex Attracted
Same-Sex Attracted is a groundbreaking documentary that follows a handful of LGBTQ students over an academic school year at the LDS-owned Brigham Young University (BYU). These lovable kids experience not only the regular day-to-day of being a college kid but also the unique trials that come with being queer at a Mormon institution, grappling with questions of faith, sexuality, gender, family, love and happiness.
As the film progresses, the students and their off-campus group Understanding Sexuality, Gender and Allyship (USGA) also realize that BYU’s administration has plans to create a new, church-sanctioned GSA – without the influence of other queer-led organizations already in play. After years in the making, Same-Sex Attracted presents the real experience of being queer at “the Lord’s University” from the perspective of real LGBTQ students struggling to make a positive change.
