In 2000, Del Shores wrote a play called Southern Baptist Sissies exposing the painful journey

of growing up gay in a church that preaches it is a sin. It has been produced by more

than 30 theatre companies across the country, and won countless awards. In 2006,

a national tour starring Leslie Jordan, Dale Dickey and Delta Burke played to sold out houses

across the country. This filmed version of the play has Shores returning to the piece in light

of the current political and social climate, where despite more acceptance of the LGBT

community, the rhetoric coming from churches, pastors and faith-based organizations

is growing stronger and more hateful with gay and questioning youth in those churches

and families caught in the middle.
