Description
If you are a student on a Christian College campus you were probably raised in an evangelical, Christian home. You went to church regularly and were told that being gay (or lesbian, bisexual,  transgender) was a sin and that you were going to hell. You were told this over and over by your parents, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders and pastors. If you arrive on campus and are struggling with your sexuality you will think that you are going to hell, that being gay is the worst sin and that, if anyone finds out, you will be expelled. This scenario has deep roots in the evangelical history of the United States where Bible-based homophobia is normative and discrimination by churches and Christian Colleges is accepted. "Queers in the Kingdom: Let Your Light Shine" tracks both the evangelical history of this nation and the emergence of OneWheaton — a group of LGBTQ alumni and allies from Wheaton College (Billy Graham's Alma Mater). OneWheaton resists the silencing and shame that has lead to a suicide on campus. They take action to support current students and each other as many connect to their backgrounds and college experience for the first time.
