With a focus on four gay and transgender Americans and their devout Christian families, this moving documentary shines a light on the love and acceptance possible within faith, while profiling the continued struggles for acceptance at the intersection of sexuality, gender identity, politics, and religion.

Without shying away from the sometimes devastating impact homophobia and transphobia can have on the most vulnerable in our community, For They Know Not What They Do is ultimately about the importance of resilience, family, and making amends for past mistakes.

As religious freedom is increasingly used as an excuse to target the LGBTIQ+ community here in Australia, director Daniel Karslake’s poignant follow-up to For the Bible Tells Me So (2007)  is both timely and hopeful for the future.
