Seminar on the Intersection of
Faith Communities and LGBT Equality
Equality Florida is joining with the Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) of Palm Beach State Community College and Reconciling Ministries Network to host a free seminar and fellowship opportunity to make a difference in our community. During this event, we'll discuss how we continue to make a difference in our faith communities to work for full equality for all, and specifically those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Workshops will include time for fellowship, worship, and learning tools that help us share our stories in ways that motivate others to action! Lunch will be provided.
