Struggling in Good Faith: LGBTQI Inclusion Across the American Religious Spectrum

June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

RSVP by Clicking Here.

This Pride month, join with spiritual communities across the Bay in sharing stories, successes and challenges to LGBTQI inclusion in our time.  This in-depth discussion and panel will explore current issues related to the intersection of LGBTQI people and religion. How each American spiritual community approaches the question of inclusion of LGBTQI people profoundly impacts our political and social climate. How are religious communities making strides toward LGBTQI inclusion? Which are at the point of internal division? Where is there flexibility and where are doors slammed shut?
