The PBS television program, To the Contrary, is an all-female news analysis series that began in 1992. The program usually features a panel discussion in which women from different political viewpoints talk about current events and other concerns that are grabbing the public’s attention. But for this special documentary edition, instead of a panel discussion, host Bonnie Erbé takes viewers to three representative churches of the “welcoming movement,” a movement of numerous congregations that are committed to welcoming, supporting, and affirming lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
