LOVE FREE OR DIE by Macky Alston
Tuesday, June 4, 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday, June 5, 12:00 p.m.
Love Free or Die is about a man whose two defining passions the world cannot reconcile: his love for God and for his partner Mark. The film is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity — and openly gay Bishop Eugene Robinson's struggle to dispel the notion that God’s love has limits.
