For much of history and today, the church has initiated or been complicit in using violent words and actions towards those we love who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.
We’re changing that.
Join us in celebrating drag queens Kai Lee Mykels, Fruitbomb, Shirley Delta Blow, and speakers such as Representative Leslie Herod, Pastor Nicole Garcia, Bishop Karen Oliveto, Dr. Deborah Wilcox, and Tyler Fair.
At these interactive discussions, we will:
1) connect statistics on LGBTQ+ experiences with Auraria Campus Ministry’s theological impetus to love and champion the rights of our queer neighbors;
2) introduce young adults to Christians who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or various sexual orientations and hear how their faith or non-faith led to where they are now;
3) discuss and highlight local LGBTQ+ advocates by engaging their stories and contributing financially to our queer communities.
We’re here to lift up the voices and stories of our LGBTQ neighbors, not to convert or pass judgment. This will be a brave space.
To register, please follow the link below. We can't wait to see you there!
