Here are some of the things the audience had to say :

" Thank you for making A Road to Home. It really is a road to hope!"

" To see that the young people in your film still had hope and dreams was empowering to me. "


We would also like to give special thanks to the LGBT Faith Sharing Ministry for hosting the event!

" Puts a human face on an uncomfortable reality..."

" Masterful storytelling and so honest ..."

" The film is an important voice for all who have been ignored, silenced and turned away. "
