Robinson, Light Need No “Saving”


Judith Light and Gene Robinson were on hand last night to celebrate the release of Save Me, a flick that looks at the ever-dramatic ex-gay movement. In the movie, directed by Robert Cary, Chad Allen and Robert Gant play two gay men who battle with their gay demons, while Light encourages them to – well, see the light.

GLAAD’s certainly thrilled about the movie’s release and even sponsored last night’s premiere to raise awareness of religious abuse. Because such things make them and their Religious, Faith, & Values division sad. And us, too.

The movie hits theaters tomorrow.

While we’re on the subject of Robinson, the openly gay bishop penned a piece over at LGBT for Obama in which he says “it’s time to get serious” about electing Barack Obama: “As LGBT voters, it’s time to put our differences and disappointments aside, and get behind the one candidate who has our interests at heart. If you’re still stinging over the unsuccessful bid for nomination by Hillary Clinton, it’s time to look forward, even if the disappointment still hurts.”

      I appreciate that you guys at Queerty know enough about GLAAD’s work that you are cognizant of their Religious, Faith, & Values division. Our equality is not coming fast enough, but at least GLAAD has recognized that one of the fronts in the fight for equality involves standing up to religious fanatics and speaking truth to the power that comes by way of their misinterpretation of scripture. I’m looking forward to seeing this film. It has some amazing actors, and I’m interested to see how the message of the film unfolds.
