With all the homophobia and transphobia and everything “phobia” going around, and with the kind of emotional trauma the world has seen in the past 2 years, it is completely understandable that we all are seeking connection, both mentally, physically, emotionally and of course, spiritually.
Queer youth are no different. More than 1 in 4 LGBTQ+ youth identify with a religion. But sadly, these young folx are often pressured to choose between their faith and the freedom to live and love authentically.
As part of PRIDE month, June 30 has been dedicated to celebrate and support LGBTQ+ youth from all faith traditions – and we uphold the human right to believe, to belong, and to be loved.
Join us for what promises to be an awesome day of loving, giving, receiving, accepting and affirming of our youth and the young at heart under one umbrella…FAITH!
Who: LGBTQ+ Youth Ages 12-24, The Young At Heart, & Allied Communities of Faith
When: Thursday, June 30th from 4pm – 7pm
Where: Woodlawn Point, Center for Community
