“Love Free or Die,” the story of one man’s fight for equality, will be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the UC Davis Student Center. A second showing is 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, at Davis Community Church, 412 C St.
The movie chronicles the life of Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person to become a bishop. His consecration in 2003, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir. He has lived with death threats ever since. Bishop Robinson’s story is one of courage and conviction, a news release said.
The film has received critical acclaim, including a Special Jury Prize for a documentary at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
The events are free and open to the community. Donations will go toward the cost of obtaining the film.
