Queer Table Talk | LGBTQIA2S+ and Faith Identities

October 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Faith and LGBTQIA2S+ 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 LGBTQIA2S+. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center estimated that between 5-10% 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 LGBTQIA2S+ people? Is faith a solution to these issues or a cause, or can it be both? Join us on Thursday, October 24th as we talk about this and more. This event is co-hosted by OutNebraska.


Registration will open 1 month before the event.
