Love Free Or Die, The Story of Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person elected bishop in Christendom, premieres on new season of Independent Lens on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012.

Sundance Award-winning documentary Love Free or Die will premiere on the new season of Independent Lens, which returns to PBS this fall on Mondays at 10 PM. Directed by Macky Alston, the film looks at church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity - and one man's struggle to dispel the notion that God's love has limits.

Love Free or Die follows Gene Robinson, the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christianity. His 2003 elevation in the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire ignited a worldwide firestorm in the Anglican Communion that has threatened schism. Even as he has pushed for greater inclusion within his own church, Bishop Robinson has become a standard bearer in the fight over the rights of LGBT people to receive full acceptance in church and state. The film will premiere on Independent Lens, hosted by Stanley Tucci, on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 10 PM on PBS (check local listings).

Alston's camera follows Bishop Robinson as he steps onto the world stage, travelling from small-town churches to the Lincoln Memorial, where he delivers the invocation at Barack Obama's inauguration; from London, where he is scorned and relegated to the fringes of a once-in-a-decade convocation of bishops to which he is deliberately not invited, to a decisive meeting in California of the Episcopal Church where Robinson plays an instrumental role in establishing the full inclusion of LGBT people. Through it all, Robinson steadfastly calls for everyone to stand for equality - inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to come out from the shadows and change history.
