Sundance Award-winning documentary Love Free or Die follows Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christianity.
His 2003 elevation, in the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire, ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion that has threatened schism. Even as he has pushed for greater inclusion within his own church, Bishop Robinson has become a standard bearer in the fight over the rights of LGBT people to receive full acceptance in church and state.
Bishop Robinson was invited by Barack Obama to give the invocation at the opening inaugural ceremonies at the Lincoln Memorial on January 18, 2009. Following his tenure as Bishop of New Hampshire at the end of 2012, Bishop Robinson serves as Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank in Washington, DC; and with St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Dupont Circle, in Washington DC, where he spearheads an initiative to change the tenor of the political debate in the nation's capital. Robinson devotes time to public speaking on behalf of LBGT inclusion in the church and in society.
Meetup Community Ambassadors, please gather at the front of the stage in the auditorium following the discussion. We'll meet and mingle.
