Reed Cowan's Prop 8 documentary nears release



I've been anticipating the release of Reed Cowan's film 8: The Mormon Proposition since Cowan released the Chris Buttars "pig sex" footage last February.

With luck, we'll be seeing the entire movie in all its glory at the 2010 Sundance Festival. The documentary examines the extreme efforts that the LDS Church has gone to in order to thwart LGBT equality -- and the harm that has come of the church's anti-gay pogrom. ---

As the latest volley in the gays-vs.-Mormon-authorities struggle, it's sure to stir up a shitstorm, so buckle up -- it's going to be a bumpy ride.
