Kay Chou, the producer of "The Shepherds" and core member of the production team, has a long career as a producer of television programs and short films.
As a third-generation Christian and an elder in the Lighthouse Church, Chou was forced out of both the family business and the church after coming out. These personal experiences motivated her to become a supporter of LGBTQ rights movements.
The documentary is intended to present the oppression and discrimination experienced by LGBTQ Christians and their straight allies in various Christian communities in Taiwan.
Elaine Zhang grew up in church and was considered part of Pastor's family and she was actively in serving. Because of this reason, after coming out, her Pastor's family is more tolerant and affectionate towards her, but friends are not able to accept her sexuality.
Due to work requirements, she had to move away from family church. She wandered to visit different groups and churches. She now attends Guting Presbyterian church, but is not regular. She occasionally attends Tong Kwang church, and is a wandering Christian.
