Did you know there are over 30,000 conservative, Christian mothers in America who accept their LGBTQ+ children and identify as “mama bears”? Although they may have grown up as evangelical Christians, mama bears are willing to risk losing friends, family and faith communities to keep their children safe — even if it rips their worlds apart. MAMA BEARS explores this growing movement through the lives of three diverse mothers and their LGBT+ offspring.
