Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Lina Hoshino, In God’s House is a critically acclaimed film documentary that tells the stories of Asian American lesbian and gay Christians, their pastors, and their parents. The film comes at a critical time in the national debate over lesbian and gay families. Some of the most intense opposition against them has come from the Asian American church. By telling the stories of Asian American gay and lesbian Christians, In God’s House attempts to promote greater tolerance and acceptance in the church.
