I just got an e-mail from my school about this really cool religion addressing Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer panel at UMASS Amherst, Amherst, MA, this Wednesday, February 11th @ 7pm.
I am planning on attending, so if any of you live out in Western Mass and want to attend, then you should! :)
Below is some more info:

Address LGBTQ Experiences"

queer (LGBTQ) and as a member of a particular religious community will

they have reconciled their faith with their LGBTQ identity.
