The intersection of homosexuality and faith

A wide range of welcoming and affirming religious groups are actively reaching out to LGBT persons – many of whom bear the scars of past rejection and condemnation by faith communities. Still, the media maddeningly turns again and again to the same tired old voices of exclusion when covering matters of gays and God. A new attempt to counter this misperception is the video website “Not All Like That,” modeled on the hugely successful “It Gets Better” campaign. The website is the brainchild of writer John Shore, who will discuss how the site gives affirming people of faith a concrete way to express support for LGBT equality.
