Welcome to Have a Blessed Gay, your weekly spiritual-comedy podcast! Join holy host, Tyler Martin, as he critically discusses social norms, current events, mental health, religion, and spirituality from an outcast's perspective. This episode, Tyler talks with Daniel Karslake, an award-winning American director, producer, and activist whose highly acclaimed work deals with pressing issues of national and international social justice. His first major film For the Bible Tells Me So, which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was short-listed for a 2008 Academy Award, is all about the divide between the LGBTQ+ community and the Christian Church. It’s an incredible film that breaks down the arguments made by the Christians against the LGBTQ+ community, specifically focusing on parents with gay and lesbian children. He’s continuing the conversation with his new documentary called For They Know Not What They Do, which opened at the Tribeca Film Festival, examining struggles the trans community is facing, conversion therapy, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, and the downfall of religious freedom. Enjoy this enlightening and important conversation!
