CHARLOTTE â€” The GayCharlotte Film Series will feature gay activist Randy Roberts Potts, the grandson of televangelist Oral Roberts, on Sept. 22, 6 p.m., at the Metropolitan Community Church of Charlotte, 1825 Eastway Dr.
A â€śFor The Bible Tells Me Soâ€ť screening will kickoff the evening, with Pottsâ€™ presentation following. He will entertain questions from the audience.
