"8: The Mormon Proposition" is a scorching indictment of the Mormon
> Church's historic involvement in the promotion & passage of California's
> Proposition 8 and the Mormon religion's secretive, decades-long campaign
> against LGBT human rights.

Reed Cowan's 80-minute film reveals classified church documents and the
> largely concealed money trail of Mormon contributions that paid for a
> high-powered campaign to pass Proposition 8. The final third is a
> wrenching exploration of the effects on gay Mormons of the church's
> strict taboo on homosexuality. The highly emotional documentary is
> narrated by Dustin Lance Black, the screenwriter for "Milk," who, like
> Mr. Cowan, is gay and grew up in a Mormon household.
>
> The evening will include discussion of the California DISCLOSE Act,
> newly proposed legislation allowing voters to see *who* is buying
> influence, as well as discussion of the film and presentation of "10
> Actions to Support Marriage Equality."
