A Christian mother of three children is working with a documentary filmmaker to publicize her family's shocking and damaging experience with gender-ideology instruction—sometimes part of mandatory curriculum—in public schools.
Erin Lee's advocacy for parental rights by publicizing her family's traumatic story has earned the title "role model for bravery" by Winsome Ministries.
"God calls us to endure difficult things and be light in dark situations," Lee says. "This documentary will be an incredible light on a dark scheme to sexualize and gender confuse children."
The genesis of the documentary is rooted in her then-sixth-grade daughter's traumatic experience being told she needed puberty blockers, and her exposure to other trans ideas in May 2021 when she was led by a trusted teacher into a supposed art club.
In reality, it was a "confidential Gender and Sexuality Alliance meeting disguised as an art club," says Lee, who has since then enrolled all of her children in Christian or alternative charter schools.
In the meeting, an external presenter told Lee's daughter, "If you're not fully comfortable in your female body, that means you're transgender."
With other children, the presenter discussed sexual attraction, polyamory and suicide.
The female presenter also told Lee's daughter and other children, "Families aren't safe, and it's OK to lie to parents about these meetings."
The presenter encouraged students to privately connect with her on social media Discord, and she promoted medical treatment for gender dysphoria.
"She encouraged my child to pursue puberty blockers without my knowledge," says Lee, who later discovered a suicide note written by her daughter before she began counseling with a Christian professional at the family's behest.
The school in Wellington, Colorado, part of Poudre Valley Schools in Fort Collins, collaborated with Skittles/Splash, an outside group that begins its LGBT indoctrination in classrooms at age five.
"It stole my incredibly vulnerable little girl's innocence and caused rapid-onset gender confusion.
And what happened when she found out and objected to the abuse?
"This external party colluded with the school board and administrators to remove me as a barrier by calling Child Protective Services to conduct a well-child check on my family," Lee says.
The horrific effects on her child and family have been tremendous, Lee says, but thankfully they're recovering from the experience, thanks to Christian counseling specifically for her daughter.
"Since taking our story public, many families have come forward with similar tales," she says.
Most families are afraid to publicly share the sensitive mental health crises and abuse of their young children, and they're reluctant to endure the hate and doubt that is thrown at parents who speak up like Lee did.
The documentary, Lee believes, will provide a voice for many families like hers, helping to end the nightmare.
"I want to help others understand what is happening in our schools and what they can do to protect their families by standing up to this growing, evil agenda targeting them," Lee says.
Total production costs for the documentary are $10,000. Lee says contributors have already funded the project half-way.
She was invited to share her family's ordeal with Winsome Ministries based in Loveland, Colorado. Watch this video for more of Lee's personal story.
