Faith and religious traditions are often perceived to be incompatible with the LGBTQ community. Indeed, much advancement of LGBTQ rights has been actively opposed by concerns couched in religiosity. However, many of the world’s major faith and spiritual traditions contain instances of advocacy for and alliance with the LGBTQ community. Fletcher LGBTQA and the Fletcher Christian Fellowship invite you to an interfaith panel where presenters from diverse traditions will share their experiences advocating for the LGBTQ community, both in relation to religious institutions and the state. The panel will explore the intersection of faith with LGBTQ issues, challenge the assumption that the two are diametrically opposed, and examine how faith can be used as a catalyst for social justice to build transnational community and advocacy.
The panel will include Reverend Irene Monroe, Kaamila Mohamed, and moderator Reverend Greg McGonigle.
