Join us tonight for a free screening of Fish Out of Water at 7pm in Hoyt Auditorium, University of Rochester River Campus. Tonight is the last film in our Out in Reel: LGBTQI Awareness Month Film Series.
The film tackles the seven Bible verses used to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination. This feature documentary uses humor and original animation to make a traditionally complex and controversial topic accessible to those who don’t like talking about religion and sexuality. Fish out of Water dives into the underbelly of America, crisscrosses red and blue states and talks to ministers from every denomination to uncover America’s impassioned relationship with homosexuality and the Bible. The film’s topic spans across culture, race, religion, age, socio-economic status.
This is the third year of our annual Out in Reel series, and we were excited to partner with ImageOut for the first time to bring you all of the films.
ImageOut presents LGBT arts and cultural experiences showcasing films, other creative works and artists to promote awareness, foster dialogue and build community.
We are also grateful to our individual University co-sponsors for each film, including sororities and fraternities, campus clubs, and other student groups. Fish Out of Water is co-sponsored by Women’s Caucus. Out in Reel is part of our larger LGBTQI awareness month, which is generously supported by the LGBT Fund of Greater Rochester, as well as programs and departments across the University.
