The documentary “Love Free or Die,” a film about Bishop Gene Robinson who became the first openly gay bishop in the history of traditional Christiandom, screens at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church (3rd and A St. SE) tonight at 7 p.m.

Robinson was consecrated as a bishop in 2003 in which he wore a bulletproof vest and caused such an international stir, he has lived with death threats almost every day since. The film follows his story as the nation debates whether LGBT people are equal to heterosexuals in the eyes of God and the eyes of the law.

This is part of a Lenten series in which Robinson will also preach on March 10 at 10 a.m.

There is a suggested $5 admission. For more information, visit stmarks.net.
