Event Description

How To Make PIE: A Recipe for Affirming LGBTQ2S+ People

Queer folks may have more legal rights than ever, but that legal permission hasn’t changed the fact that LGBTQ2S+ folks experience discrimination in every area of society.

LGBTQ2S+ Affirming churches still only make up less than 5% of religious communities. What is holding us back from embracing difference and diversity when we can be leaders in what a radically welcoming community can look like? How do we grow beyond tolerance into celebration?

The acronym of PIE (Public, Intentional, Explicit) embodies a guiding map and litmus test for people who want to be more tangibly affirming, of themselves and others. It’s possible for us to be bold and innovative, and we don’t have to do this alone!

We will dive into these topics with conversation, music, comedy, and curiosity! Q&A available.
