TAKING A CHANCE ON GOD
Dignity/New York, celebrating its 40th anniversary, presents the New York City premiere of Taking a Chance on God,a documentary film by Brendan Fay.

Q & A and reception with John McNiell, Producer Ilene Cutler and Director Brendan Fay will follow the film.

An inspiring portrait of a pioneer gay priest, this film follows the extraordinary life of 86-year-old John McNeill from his Buffalo boyhood through his experiences as a POW in Nazi Germany, Vietnam peace promoter, leading gay rights advocate, and loving partner of forty-six years to Charles Chiarelli. McNeill - the author of groundbreaking works of gay spirituality,a founder of the LGBT Catholic group Dignity/New York, and a gay community leader during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s - refused to be silenced by the Vatican on LGBT issues, which resulted in his expulsion from the priesthood. Chronicling McNeill's love for the Catholic Church, the LGBT community, his Jesuit brothers, and his partner, Taking a Chance on God is a powerful story of faith, love and perseverance in the face of oppression and rejection.
