Seventh-Gay Adventists

Growing up Adventist means knowing you belong. And being Adventist is about much more than a set of beliefs--it's a close-knit community not easily left. Faith, identity, and sexuality collide in this raw and moving documentary about the challenges and spiritual journeys of three Seventh-day Adventists who love God and their church and are also gay.

You can believe the Bible and
welcome the LGBTQ community

Pastor Colby Martin researched the 6 texts that are traditionally used to condemn LGBTQ people. He shares both his research findings and his personal journey of growth. Kinship is sharing this book free to all. We believe it does an outstanding job of explaining the original context and how we can have more inclusive communities today.
