Gloriously Queer - JUNE 21ST - JUNE 23RD - Los Angeles
LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF AS GLORIOUSLY QUEER. AN EVENT BY QUEER CHRISTIANS FOR QUEER CHRISTIANS.
“IS THIS EVENT FOR ME?”
As a queer christian, you may have felt like there aren’t a lot of spaces where you get to be around other queer christians, be celebrated and embrace who you are and all of your unique gifts. If that sounds good, this event is for you!
Has the church seen parts of your identity as weakness or a sin but you have learned to (or want to learn) to see your identity as actually reflecting God and goodness and the Divine within you?
What if you are stronger than you think? What if your connection to God and reflection of God’s glory can be stronger because you are queer? What if God is calling you to shine brighter as an LGBTQ person, not diminish yourself?
If you believe or want to believe any of these things, this event is for you!
We think it’s time for queer people of faith to more fully embrace the glory that’s within, so that we can create a new story for our personal lives, and also for the future of Christianity. We need one another in this, so let’s join together to support and cheer one another on. Let’s name and process the old untrue things about us and free us all up to be gloriously queer.
If you want that too, this event is for you.
“WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?”
Expect to spend Friday evening and all day Saturday with other GLORIOUSLY QUEER friends to celebrate our many wonderful identities.
There will be times to go deep, to be introspective and reflect and there will also be times to have some freaking fun! You will leave being able to more deeply name the ways that you are stronger, wiser, more filled with God’s goodness and more fully you!
You’ll hear stories and you will get to share yours too. Honestly, you should come expecting to undo all of the toxic narratives that you have heard or continue to hear about yourself. The Script Gets Flipped Today!
“WE WANT YOU HERE”
This event is for LGBTQ people of faith. Wherever you find yourself in the beautiful L,G,B,T, or Q spectrum, or perhaps in the in between spaces, this event is for you. While we are inclusive when it comes to religion, the main paradigm we’ll be focusing on is Christianity. Not as the only reasonable or right faith, but as the foundation for our conversations and the specific places of harm that a Christian background brings.
So, if you find yourself at the intersection of your sexuality and your spirituality, we want you here. You are GLORIOUSLY QUEER.
