Faith And Fury (10/21)

October 21, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

At a time when the Church still seems far from accepting of queer and trans folks, we bring together stories from all over the world about love and resilience to offer examples for living fully—and with faith. LGBTQ+ people are once again forced to defend ourselves against bigotry and oppression in a world where it is often easier to ignore the hearts and lives of real people in favor of adhering to ancient doctrine.
