This year’s Christian Faith and LGBT Experience Lecture features a multi-dimensional study of the life of LGBT Christians living and working in Rochester, NY and the faith communities who have supported them over the last 25 years. Part of the CRCDS Spring Lectures, “The Power of Stories: Resist, Reclaim, Resurrect,” the lecture and exhibits reflect the struggles and triumphs of LGBT people who have served God from within the church, as well as those excluded because of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender experience.

Join us throughout the week as we celebrate the miles we have traversed. All are welcome to participate in self-expression, discussion and movies.
