First Cut: Father Ray Comes Out
Father Ray, a parish vicar in South London, is approaching 60 but he's decided he doesn't want to die living a lie. He is gay and for him, it is time to be honest with himself, and to tell his congregation. This short film, set to Father Ray's voice and interwoven with his biography, follows Father Ray in the lead up to the most climatic sermon of his life - that attacks bullying, homophobia and where in no uncertain terms he declares he is a homosexual. The film observes the reactions that follow and the thoughts of Father Ray who realizes there is now 'no turning back'.
