Daneen Akers is a documentary filmmaker, writer, “cautiously Christian” seeker, and mother who believes deeply in the power of stories. Her film projects explore faith, identity, and belonging and include the feature documentary, Seventh-Gay Adventists, which screened at numerous film festivals around the world and Outspoken, a series of seven short documentary films about LGBTQ Adventists who are living out their faith and who they are in unique and compelling ways. Her new project is Holy Troublemakers & Unconventional Saints, an illustrated children’s book with profiles and original portraits of 50 people of various faiths who worked for love and justice, even when that meant rocking the religious boat.
