In this documentary portrait, This Is Jessica, LGBTQIA+ rights advocate Jessica Bair shares her transition story and struggle within the Mormon faith. Assigned male at birth in Utah, Jessica always knew she was a girl inside. She fought hard to please everyone by joining the military, marrying, and having children, but hiding the truth was too painful. After her transition, Jessica fought to remain a Mormon, but the church still does not support LGBTQIA marriage or parenting. This film poses a question that many LGBTQIA people struggle with: do I remain a part of a religion that I love even though my religion won’t love me back?
The film premieres Sunday, August 15th at 6:45 p.m. Snatch your tickets here: https://outfestla2021.com/this-is-jessica/
