Love Free or Die, which is having its national television broadcast on PBS’ Independent Lens on October 29th (check local listings), is about a man whose two defining passions are in direct conflict: his love for God and for his partner Mark. Gene Robinson is the first openly gay person to become a bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom. His consecration in 2003, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir, and he has lived with death threats every day since.

Love Free or Die follows Bishop Gene Robinson from small-town churches in New Hampshire to the Lincoln Memorial at the President's inauguration in 2008. Bishop Robinson inspires people to change history … to stand for equality ... to open their hearts and minds to support LGBT dignity.

Because the world is changing.

A groundswell of people is emerging from the shadows of silence to stand for the full dignity and equality of all – no matter who they are or who they love. They are telling their stories of courage to conflicted loved ones, sharing why their own beliefs compel them to welcome, affirm and celebrate LGBT people – just as they would anybody else. Because people are people.

Through collective action, courageous storytelling, and effective advocacy, this rising generation is opening its loved ones' hearts and minds to the dignity and equality of all people.

In this critical election cycle, as voters in seven states decide whether or not to support the equality of LGBT people, the Groundswell of Courage campaign is using Love Free or Die to change hearts and minds – in this cycle and beyond.
