LGBTQIA+ and Religion: let’s talk about it openly. Navigating the compatibility and conflicts between historically-traditional expressions of sexual orientation and Christianity* can be challenging. Societal progress has been made, but there’s still a ways to go collectively and locally. Our panel will discuss some of those progressions, some of the stallings, and some of the setbacks. Bring your experiences, and let’s share. This conversation is open to everyone regardless of religious experience, and we invite those of differing backgrounds to teach us as well.
