4. VOD: Love Free or Die
Being a trailblazer is never easy, but when it comes to tackling antigay sentiment in religious communities, it's a nearly Sisyphusian battle. But the courageous bishop Gene Robinson managed to do just that, as the first openly gay bishop ordained in the Episcopal church. Love Free or Die, which hits digital release platforms on Tuesday, details Robinson's experiences and contributions as bishop, and provides a look at how far this church has come — and those who hold it back. The film won the Special Jury Prize for documentaries at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, and will be see a wide release on DVD April 9. In the meantime, you can find the video On Demand. See the trailer below.
