Many of us in the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer) community have felt detached from the spiritual part of ourselves, due to guilt, shame, and traditional religious teachings. Thankfully, with many denominations and spiritual organizations beginning to accept, if not embrace, diversity within their congregations, many of us are beginning to reconsider our relationship with our Higher Self (God, Spirit, the Universe). And many more have questions about how to reacquaint themselves with this Higher Power.
The first ever LGBTQ Spiritual Summit: "Bringing Our Spirituality Out of the Closet" will feature religious and spiritual leaders from ten different welcoming and inclusive denominations and practices, including Buddhism, Catholicism, New Thought, Christianity, Unitarian Universalist, Humanism, and others. The panel will speak briefly about their congregations, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions, and break-out sessions will be held for LGBTQ Youth, as well as on the topics "Forgiving Religion" and "What the Bible Does and Does NOT Say About Homosexuality."
