The Faith & Belief Forum’s LGBTQ+ Interfaith Network is a space for LGBTQ+ people from different faiths, beliefs and backgrounds, to come together in a friendly environment. We use interfaith activities and methods to explore personal stories of faith and belief, learn from each other’s traditions, and build solidarity and community. We work in collaboration with a range of brilliant single faith and regional LGBTQ+ organisations.
Thanks to funding from Consortium’s LGBT+ Futures Intersection Fund, in Spring 2021 we are organising a series of online sessions. Each session will provide opportunities for reflection, connection, and learning from each other and special guests. All sessions will include breakout rooms for those who want to network in smaller groups.
You are welcome to have your video switched on or off, depending on your preferences.
