An LGBT equality group has accused the Presbyterian Church of “bias” ahead of a protest outside a Belfast place of worship which is due to screen a film about a “former homosexual”.

The film, Once Gay: Matthew And Friends, will be screened in Townsend Street Presbyterian Church on Valentine’s Day. It has been produced by the Ballynahinch-based Christian group, Core Issues Trust, which last year saw protesters attend its screening of so-called “gay cure” film Voices Of The Silenced at Ballynahinch Baptist Church.

The new film features X Factor Malta contestant Matthew Grech, who Core Issues Trust leader Mike Davidson claims “left homosexuality as part of his Christian testimony”.
