Open is a story of coming out as a gay man while working as a Baptist youth minister in Texas. Open is a story about a typical Christian evangelical family in the American heartland that must grapple with the child who challenges their understanding of the world and disappoints their expectations. Open is a story set on the front lines of the struggle for LGBT equality in the 21st century.
Open explores the universal question of how we as humans live true to ourselves when the network of relations we are part of pushes back against us. Open is the story of how one man succeeded—living openly as a gay man and Christian minister in the American heartland.
