Omaha Table Talk: Faith and LGBTQ

April 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Faith and LGBTQ+ is one of the most contentious identity intersections talked about. When the person you are conflicts with the deity you praise, it can lead to a life full of internal, as well as community, conflict. An estimated 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center estimated that between 5 and 10% of LGBT youth, depending on age and sex groups, have attempted suicide, a rate 1.5-3 times higher than heterosexual youth. What factors contribute to statistics like these? Is there a responsibility for organizations centered around faith to assist in the lives of LGBTQ people? Is faith a solution to these issues or a cause, or can it be both? Join us on Tuesday, April 16th as we talk about this and more.


Omaha Table Talk is a program which ensures everyone has a seat at the table – inviting all to take part in an open and honest dialogue about race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference, while enjoying a complimentary meal.


This event is free, open to the public (age 15 and older), ASL interpretation available, wheelchair accessible, and vegan/allergy-friendly. Registration is strongly encouraged so that specific diet requirements can be taken into account.


Please address questions or concerns about this event to info@inclusive-communities.org.
