    Connections Rev Wanda Floyd

    Many of our faith communities have made significant inroads into being inclusive of LGBTQ people of faith. Come share your community of faith’s journey towards LGBTQ inclusion. What steps did you take?

    Our special guest for the evening is Rev. Wanda Floyd, Emerging Church and MCC Community Coordinator for MCC Churches Global and the founding Pastor for Imani MCC of Durham. Rev. Wanda will share some of the MCC history and its work for LGBTQ justice. We will also talk about LGBTQ Inclusion in other faith communities over the last 50 years.

    If you need to start a conversation within your faith community, we have resources to get you started!

    Connections Program

    Connections is a program of the LGBT Center of Raleigh that provides an opportunity for LGBTQ people of all faith backgrounds (or no faith backgrounds) and our Allies to come together and have conversation about various common concerns and ideas. The idea is to promote communication across a diverse group of people and provide safe, nonjudgmental space for people to express themselves with each other. Reconciling who we are - our sexuality and our spirituality - can be very difficult; Connections can provide a place where we are able to talk openly about such issues as well as other topics that some might consider taboo. Connections is all about building relationships - NOT religion.

    Sometimes, we will have a main speaker on a central topic, but most months, we'll just have conversations around the room with small groups and individuals.

    This month, please bring some refreshments to share with others. Come and explore new Connections in our faith community.
