Logo’s new documentary Equality U follows a group of 33 young activists on the Soulforce Equality Ride, a first of its kind, two-month, cross country tour to confront anti-gay discrimination policies at 19 conservative religious and military colleges.
The series focuses on seven of the “Equality Riders” and two courageous students they encounter along their journey. The Riders, led by 23-year-olds Jacob Reitan and Haven Herrin, must come to terms with their new role as young activists, deal with internal conflict within the group, and face the daily onslaught from administrators that don’t want them on their campuses. And while most of the young Riders identify as Christian, not all of them do so in the same way, if at all.
