Inspired by the experience of coming out as a lesbian to her sorority sisters during her senior year at Vanderbilt, filmmaker Ky Dickens explores the Biblical passages used to condemn homosexuality in this entertaining and informative documentary.


Interweaving whimsical animation with enlightening interviews from both within the lesbian and gay community and as well with conservative and progressive theologians from across the country, Fish Out Of Water breaks down seven key passages from the Old and New Testaments - from Adam and Eve to Sodom and Gomorrah and the Purity Codes - while confronting issues of translation and historical context that affect today's interpretations of the Bible.


As with the groundbreaking film For the Bible Tells Me SoFish Out of Water is essential viewing for anyone who wants - or needs - a deeper understanding of this contentious issue, or who is engaged in our national dialogue about faith, homosexuality and same-sex marriage.


Debunks the quotes that have long been the source of legitimizing hatred and discrimination of the GLBT community; recommended.” - Gerald A. Notaro, Library Journal
