TONIGHT: Boulder Pride Community Forum on Faith & LGBTQness
Warning: This is a very very last-minute event announcement. Read quickly.
You’ve probably heard about Boulder Sacred Heart’s appallingly bigoted decision to punish a couple of lesbian parishioners for their sexuality by denying their preschool daughter a place at their school. Well, in the wake of that outrage (and knowing that it’s only the most recent example of a depressingly common trend), one might wonder why would that family would want to remain Catholic when the Catholic Church sees fit to treat them this way.
That question will be addressed in tonight’s Boulder Pride Community Forum: “I’m LGBTQA and Religious–Ask Me How! (and Why)”
The forum will be held from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Wesley Chapel (1290 Folsom Street, Boulder). Panel members representing diverse faiths as well as points along the LGBTQA spectrum will share their stories. After the panel there will be time for questions from the audience.
An in-depth list and description of the panelists can be found on Facebook, but you’ll have to log in to view the page.
Just to reemphasize: the panel is tonight, Thursday, April 15. Hopefully some of you still have time to run on over for some great community and conversation!
