We're All Angels
In the world of evangelical Christianity, the very existence of a gay and Christian singing duo is a source of controversy. By breaking rules and stereotypes, Jason & deMarco hope to prove in We re All Angels that life can be lived beyond conventional rules and without boundaries. We re All Angels is an in-depth look into the lives of real-life lovers, Jason & deMarco - at their music and their lives, at home, in the studio, on stage and on the road. The film fearlessly tackles the struggles of growing up, coming out, falling in love and living and working together. Through their story, the documentary takes on hot-button issues such as religion and its relationship to sexuality and the fiery resistance of many evangelical Christians to the expression of homosexual love. The film has already been condemned by evangelical Christian groups and various Catholic organizations.

A must seeDec 29, 2008
By Jennifer Foxx
This is a must see for everyone, gay and straight. While it is the story of a gay Christian pop duo and their struggle for acceptance in the gay and Christian community which traditionally don't mix, at it's heart it's a love story. Mr. Nunez does a wonderful job in illustrating the hate that these two must face without preaching to the viewer. It may be a cliché to say "I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me" but with this movie it's all true!

Quite brilliant!Jan 31, 2009
By S. Banner
A friend bought tickets to see this film at Outfest in Los Angeles a couple of years ago and I went along without any expectations. I couldn't imagine being interested in the story of two Christian singers but the film turned out to be completely compelling. It's very funny for one thing and it sneaks up on you and draws you in emotionally as well without being in any way sentimental. I cried. I am very excited that it's now on DVD and seems to have some good extras on it. I recommend anyone who is considering it, to take a chance and order the DVD. By the way, it's a much better film than Benjamin Button, though that's another story...

A Unique & Very Real Love StoryNov 08, 2009
By Antony Edwards
This documentary should be seen by everyone on both sides of the ongoing debate on gay marriage & gay rights in general. Thanks to two unlikely heroes, Christian singers who happen to be a gay couple, you'll be entertained & enlightened--even if you think you have your mind made up about any of the issues that come up in this film you'll probably re-think your position. This is a truly heartfelt movie but is neither cloying or pandering. Had this been a fictional story it might be too far-fetched but the fact that it's real has much greater impact.

Newest biggest fanSep 05, 2009
By Ian Keeper
Jason and DeMarco are amazing. I really love them a lot. I purchased and watched We're All Angels a couple of weeks and now I'm hooked on their music. What voices!!! I am listening to "All I Ask For" right now and I think it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard in my life...The Gospel genre is one of the few genre's of music I haven't listen to much of but I'm hooked on J&D's music. So inspiring & uplifting. I listen to it constantly...just love it.

Out of the closet and Into the ChurchMay 14, 2010
"We're all angels" is a compelling documentary about the gay Christian musical duo Jason and deMarco. While Jason was raised Pentecostal, and even was part of the CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) scene, deMarco was raised Catholic. Their backgrounds are a study in contrasts. Jason remembers the contradictory messages of homosexuality being condemned--but allowing sex-segregated swimming, so he could be with other boys. DeMarco reminisces that as a Catholic, he wasn't taught hellfire. Some would argue that he typifies the post-Vatican II church that soft-pedals homosexuality and Hell.
"We're all angels" shows the issue of homosexuality and Christianity mainly from the couple's perspective- those who disagree are simply haters. There are the usual loudmouthed protesters in the opening sequence... but there aren't the complicated nuances of reparative therapy, the whole "ex-gay" movement, NARTH (quite relevant considering the recent resignation of George Rekers), and the Catholic group Courage (which encourages celibacy instead of "reparation") "We're all angels" also shows the effort in the music industry. The duo tour on cruise ships, perform at galas, work on the production of their album. They're artists. Till the End of Time This Is Love Songs for the Spirit It mainly shows the production of: Spirit Pop
"We're all angels" sings a beautiful song about love, Christian love, family, and tolerance.
