Coming Out in Faith: an Interfaith Look at the Coming Out Experience

Saturday, October 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Many gay or transgender people have been rejected, or feel rejected, by the faith community they grew up in. And so they leave the faith home of their childhood and seek another path or leave the path altogether. More often lately, many are seeking a way back to a welcoming and embracing faith.

On Saturday, October 21, four seekers and searchers will explore this journey, by sharing their own stories and and how LGBTQ issues are addressed in their past or current faith families. Panelists: Michael DeVoll, DeVoll Counseling Services; Nishta Mehir, Blue Jean Gourmet blog; Rabbi Gideon Estes, Congregation Or Ami; Erum Rani, Iftikhar Community, the Very Rev. Barkley Thompson, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral.

Cosponsors: Rice | Boniuk Institute and Justice and Peace Council at Christ Church Cathedral, Houston.
