‘Queers in the Kingdom: Let Your Light Shine’ tells the story of LGBTQ survivors of Christian colleges while exploring the deep historical roots of evangelical Christianity in the U.S. Bible-based homophobia is alive and well on Christian college campuses where students fear not just being expelled, but going to hell if they are lesbian or gay. ‘Queers in the Kingdom’ follows an LGBTQ alumni & allies group from Wheaton College (Billy Graham’s Alma mater) as they decide to make themselves visible on the very campus that would condemn them. Wheaton forms in response to a student suicide and decides to ‘Let Their Light Shine’ for current students and themselves! Written & directed by Markie Hancock.
