New film about ‘ex-homosexuals’ to premiere on ‘Coming Out Day’

.- A new film, to be released next month, debunks the notion that homosexuality is a fixed sexual orientation. “I Do Exist!” documents the lives of five individuals who at one time identified as homosexual but have since left the homosexual lifestyle.

Churches, colleges, and schools across the U.S. are scheduled to screen the film Oct. 9-11 in an effort to counter "National Coming Out Day," an event celebrated by homosexual groups, reports AgapePress.

However, the producer, Dr. Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College, admits it will be difficult to get the film shown in high school health classes and public universities, where homosexuality is viewed as normal, legitimate behavior.

Throckmorton says his film conveys a message that is often censored by the media and homosexual activist groups.

The researcher says that Coming Out Day promotes the notion that “the only healthy response to same-sex attraction is to 'come out' as homosexual and embrace a homosexual identity.

"The film,” he says, “gives the narratives of these individuals who've chosen a different path, one that is consistent with traditional Church teaching concerning sexuality."

“I Do Exist!” includes commentary by Dr. Robert Spitzer of Columbia University and Dr. Mark Yarhouse of Regent University.
