A film by Alan B. Smith and Tsvete Smith

Featured original songs The Way and Ride On  by 2/3 Goat

Additional music by Nathan Daniels

The purpose behind our documentary is to explore the arguments for human rights of lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender people through the lens of religious, scientific, cultural, civil and legal paradigms.

A spectrum of studies, opinions and interpretations are discussed.

What are the constitutional and philosophical implications of denying any group of people true equality?

Are families with same-sex parents dysfunctional?

Is gender a black and white issue?

Are people born gay?

What does is mean to be married?

What does our ancestral mythology and religion tell us about our past beliefs and present?

BORN EQUAL will be available for Video on Demand on OUTtv! December 2015

The film will also be broadcast on TV in Canada and throughout Europe! Beginning in 2016!
