Faith communities and LGBTQ people have a troubled history in America that some may characterize with distrust and shame. That is changing as more and more faith leaders welcome and affirm LGBTQ people and families in their places of worship. Simultaneously, the LGBTQ community is building relationships with faith communities for both spiritual guidance, cultural influence, and public policy allyship. Dr. Washington will offer timely insight into the harms, joys, and community building efforts connected to these challenges. What is the current state of affairs within the community, and how do current perspectives on race and culture also impact the dynamic?

This event is sponsored by the UNF LGBT Resource Center and co-sponsored by UNF Interfaith Center. Generous support from the LGBT Community Fund for NE Florida makes this program possible.
