5.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings
(3 customer reviews)


Humorous, tender, and generous in spirit, this affectionate biography of Janie Spahr and her family is laid out against the background of our deep cultural prejudices. It proves that acceptance and love trump alienation and intolerance any day.

Duration : 27 min.

Release Date : 1996





This honest portrait of a family’s journey of acceptance and love will deepen anyone’s understanding of homosexuality. We watch the Reverend Jane Adams Spahr gradually come to embrace a part of herself that she had disowned for years. We hear from her twin sister, her parents, her husband and her children; and we witness their struggle as the reality of her homosexuality and its implications begins to dawn on them.

Your Mom’s A Lesbian, Here’s Your Lunch, Have A Good Day at School

3 reviews for Your Mom’s A Lesbian, Here’s Your Lunch, Have A Good Day at School

  1. 5 out of 5

    “This video is about one woman’s courage in admitting her homosexuality to herself and her family. The film follows their journey toward understanding, acceptance and a shared commitment to changing a society that denies so many people freedom to live in harmony with their deepest natures. It crystallizes what is intuitive: The expression of love–honored in whatever form it takes–has the power to uplift everyone.”

    “Those who consider ‘family values’ the exclusive ownership of a traditional combo may find their hearts tugged and their prejudices yanked by the story of this irregular family.”
