“Anyone and Everyone”
This Sunday, August 12, 7 - 9 p.m.
Saint Lawrence Martyr Parish Hall, 1940 S Prospect Ave, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
Featuring Guest Speaker and Moderator Frank McKown
This moving and timely documentary, “ Anyone and Everyone ”, represents the struggles of parents and families of different faith traditions dealing with their children as they come out gay or lesbian. Combining interviews with archival pictures and film, we follow their development from the initial shock to, in some cases, committed activism all in the name of love. In the words of Jesus, “feed my lambs”. Discussion will follow facilitated by Frank McKown.
