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


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.
