Religion & Sexuality Film Series: “Fish Out of Water”

The roads we travel in life are interesting and varied. One of the more complicated aspects happens at the intersection of Religion and Sexuality. Join UCF Libraries and the Religion & Cultural Studies Program for a series of  films that examine what happens when religion and sexuality meet from the perspective of three different traditions.

Discussion facilitated by Dr. Jeanine Viau


“Fish Out of Water”

 Inspired by the experience of coming out as a lesbian to her sorority sisters during her senior year at Vanderbilt, filmmaker Ky Dickens explores the Biblical passages used to condemn homosexuality in this informative yet entertaining documentary. Interweaving whimsical animation with enlightening interviews from both within the lesbian and gay community and as well with theologians from across the country, Fish Out of Water breaks down seven key passages from the Old and New Testaments - from Adam and Eve to Sodom and Gomorrah and the Purity Codes - while confronting the debate over translation and historical context that affect today's interpretations of the Bible.
