Join me in dialogue that matters!

LEVEL GROUND FILM FESTIVAL!  A Safe Space for Dialogue Through Art

This dialogue matters. 

It will save lives. 

I promise you.


I will be speaking as a panelist at the Level Ground Film Festival in Pasadena CA from February 28- March 1. This is a unique and groundbreaking film festival which seeks to use art and film as a neutral space for dialogue around the issues of sexuality, gender, and spirituality within the Christian Community.


I am honored to be part of this event and a sponsor! As a graduate of Fuller, and as a an Affirmative Therapist, I know first hand how important this dialogue is. I'm happy to have this event on my Speaking Schedule for 2014. 


The Executive Directors, Chelsea McIntruff, and Samantha Curley are both students at Fuller Seminary and have developed an event that is truly unique! They are engaging with people on all sides of the culture war around sexuality and faith, and they are making a difference!


Please join me in this important and groundbreaking dialogue by attending a screening or sharing the festival through social media.  I hope you will join me in supporting what some would call "radical cooperation" for the sake of community, understanding, and peacemaking.

In the midst of social, political, and religious divisions surrounding LGBT people, Level Ground works to foster a different kind of conversation. Using art to create safe space for dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality, we hope to cultivate a better way of speaking with one another across our differences and disagreements.

Level Ground works with artists and communities, curating art that tells stories and fosters reconciliation. We also host the world's first faith-based LGBT film and arts festival in Southern California each spring.
