To combat Alabama's decision on not airing an episode of a CHILDREN'S SHOW about a gay wedding, Birmingham's First United Methodist Church, in collaboration with Sidewalk Film Festival and SHOUT LGBTQ Festival, will screen the episode on June 15. 

First Church's mission is to be an open place for all and for many years we have been advocates for the full inclusion of LGBTQ persons not only in the life of the Church, but in all of society. We have seen the good that can come from sharing our space with our partners who seek to elevate conversations about justice in our community. 

Rev. Stephanie Arnold

The vast majority of parents will not have heard about the content, whether they agree with it or not. Because of this, we felt it would be a violation of trust to broadcast the episode.

 -Mike McKenzie, director of programming at Alabama Public TV 

Rachael Morgon, creative director of both Sidewalk and SHOUT, decided to organize the screening. 

I’m used to thinking through the whole process in terms of figuring out where the best place to put a film may be. Marriages happen in churches all the time, so the venue made complete sense. 

-Rachael Morgon

More than 100 have RSVP'd for the screening according to NBC.
