Insight with seasoned host Jenny Brockie returns to SBS with new episodes from late February.
The first episode deep dives into issues around religion and sexuality.
It will be followed by the return of Dateline and The Feed.
Insight is Australia’s leading forum for discussion and powerful people centred stories. Each week, host Jenny Brockie uses her unique skills to guide a lively debate on a single topic – from matchmakers, burnout, footy concussions, to being wrongfully convicted, there is no topic Insight won’t explore.
“Coming Out With Faith”
While LGBTIQ+ rights and representation have come a long way, for those who come from a faith based family or community, the journey can be a lot more complicated and the risks can be severe. As our guests explain, trying to keep these two incompatible parts of their identity together can be painful, confusing and even impossible. Insight hears from guests about the extreme lengths their faith has driven them to in order to change their sexuality – from prayers to exorcisms – and the reactions from their families and religious communities when they have been brave enough to come out.
With case studies from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, host Jenny Brockie’s questions dive deep into the very personal conflict between religion and sexuality, and how the two can be reconciled. This moving episode looks at a richly complex and timeless topic that is rarely discussed in such detail and so openly.
8:30pm Tuesday February 25 on SBS.
