Southern Baptist Sissies cover


Southern Baptist Sissies is a film of the theatrical experience of writer/director Del Shores’ GLAAD Award-winning play about four gay boys growing up in the Southern Baptist church. It explores the conflict between the caustic rhetoric of dogmatic religion and the fragile development of adolescent homosexuality while challenging hypocrisy, exposing damage and offering hope. The intimate experience of theatre on the film screen reveals the complicated emotions from all sides – the confusedĀ child, the struggling adolescent and the angry and damaged adult.

2 Visitor Reviews for Southern Baptist Sissies

  1. Rick James says:

    I wish I could say this was an honest a d original film. It was not. Unfortunately, this is just another one sided view and twisted hatred toward others with a moral pov against homosexuality. Constantly depicting church goers as bigots and homophobes, void of any compassion and common sense. The story in itself attempts to shine a light on hypocrisy, when it simply focus on its own ignorance.

  2. Charles Wm Wells says:

    I don’t think I just watched any of it. I was either laughing, crying, or loving my way thru every scene of this
    raw, provocative, at times very tender film. Next morning woke feeling like I had done 10 years of psychoanalysis.
