The upcoming documentary BACKLASH (aka Turn) examines the heartbreaking journey that many gays endure when their parents turn away from them in the name of God. Many conservative and orthodox religions turn their congregations against the LGBTQ community; this in turn leads some families to shun their very own children, a pain that never goes away and for some lasts a lifetime.


The upcoming documentary BACKLASH (aka TURN) dives deep into the LGBTQ community in the center of North Carolina as they guard themselves from the backlash of hate that is being thrown at them every day since the landmark Supreme Court ruling on June 26, 2015 giving same-sex couples the legal right to marry and the recent wedding cake decision as of June 4, 2018. But they are not alone as they stand side-by-side with local religious leaders and activists.
