Synopsis

SoleJourney shows how dedicated and courageous individuals, following in the footsteps of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., use non-violent resistance and acts of civil disobedience to confront anti-gay rhetoric as well as religious and political oppression.

This powerful, inspiring documentary exposes James Dobson's Focus on the Family, a well-funded, politically powerful organization that assaults the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families.

Interweaving stories of courage and commitment and interviews with movement leaders such as Mel White of Soulforce, Judy Shepard of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, and actor and activist Chad Allen, SoleJourney shows how a small group of individuals take action against a colossal adversary - including a six-day, 65 mile march from the Colorado State Capitol in Denver to the Focus on the Family's headquarters in Colorado Springs.


What the Critics are Saying

"If you’re interested in using non-violent resistance as a way to maintain self-respect while simultaneously tackling prejudice, then SoleJourney is a trip worth taking."
- Philadelphia International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

"SoleJourney is an absolutely inspirational film that demonstrates the impact of turning out and taking direct action in support of full equality and dignity. We are the change we want to see in the world and this film will get folks out of their seats and into the streets advocating for the dignity and equality we deserve."
- Molly McKay, Media Director, Marriage Equality USA
