Within many religious communities, the subject of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, two-spirited (LGBTQTS) people leads to heated discussions and judgmental assertions. For people identifying as LGBTQTS within these religious contexts, such discussions are rhetorical, emotional, psychological and theological acts of terror, legitimizing mistreatment of some of the most dedicated believers, and often, physical violence against anyone perceived as non-heterosexual. What forms does that mistreatment and violence take, and how might we, as a Black Religious Community, respond? Join us as we open conversation about these topics!
