St. Michael’s to show documentary ‘Love Free or Die’ at Latchis

BRATTLEBORO — On Friday, Oct. 11, at the Latchis Theatre, there will be two showings of the documentary “Love Free or Die,” a film about the life of the Rev. Eugene Robinson of New Hampshire, and how he became the first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal Church.

Robinson's consecration as Bishop of New Hampshire in 2004 shook the worldwide Anglican and Episcopal churches, bringing them to near schism. He retired from the post earlier this year.

Showings will be at 5:15 p.m., and again at 7:30 p.m. Robinson will attend and answer questions after each showing of the film.

The event is sponsored by St. Michael's Episcopal Church. Admission by free-will offering, with proceeds going to Green Mountain Crossroads.
