Movie Reviews

Fun and Compelling Movie
Sam Smith | 05/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This doc about gay teens who attend a Bible camp is fascinating. Watching the kids open up about their religious beliefs and their sexual orientation is very compelling. I saw the movie at Outfest, LA's gay film festival, and the audience went wild -- giving a huge standing ovation at the end. In fact it won the audience award for the best doc that year. I'll definitely get a copy to add to my collection when it comes out. Both the gay and Christian communities can learn a lot through the kids' honesty."

""Camp Out"

Reconciling Sexuality

Amos Lassen

Coming in August from Liberation Entertainment is an amazing little film, "Camp Out". In the film a group of gay teens celebrate, question and reconcile their sexuality at a Bible camp which is not at all typical. Coming to terms with sexuality and religion is not a new subject but actually seeing people do it and express their views vocally is.
The Naming Project in rural Minnesota sponsors a teen summer camp which provides a religious summer for GLBT teens. It is the first, and to my knowledge, the only camp like this.
Thomas is eighteen years old is gay and wants to be Christian but he knows that there is a movement and a backlash against Christian gay people and he wants to know how he can be who he is when people tell him that he is evil. He says his love for G-d is the greatest attribute he has. Tim is also at camp because he has no gay friends and would like some as well as a boyfriend. Christine is a young lesbian who is introverted and there is Jesse who is everyone's favorite hottie.
The group has spiritual activities and singalongs with the pastors Brad and Jay and they also have some typical gay activities such as "Truth or Dare". There is a lot of drama with these youngsters and this is what makes the film so interesting. We see a whole new generation of gay youth and see what the future of gay America will look like. This is a documentary worth owning as it answers many of the questions that adults have as well.

"This film was so well done it made me laugh and it also made me cry but what is did most of all is open my eye`s to how hard it is for some young adults
to have to struggle with their everyday living and how they deal with their feeling`s.
But I have a feeling everyone of these young people will do GREAT in this life we all have to just keep fighting the fight!
Thank you Tim, Jesse, Christine,Thomas ect, for that peek into your lives and opening alot of peoples eye`s!"
Amazing Look At Being a Gay Christian Youth
Anthony M. Bowen | Mass. | 08/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Many of the new LGBT documentaries that come out are dealing with difficult, cutting edge topics. Camp Out is no exception. Very high quality, the movie looks to just capture five days of the first LGBT youth Christian camp. The directors take a neutral role, wanting to show the raw struggles that gay Christian youth go through. Whether you believe homosexuality is compatabile with Christianity or not, this film is about the diverse youth that many of us know and a great opportunity to learn about the upcoming generation. As a gay Christian youth, this movie helped confirm that there are many others like myself dealing with similar issues. Great praise for Camp Out and The Naming Project."
