Resources for Allies of LGBTQ+ People
We know you want to get it right.
You care deeply about your faith and the LGBTQ+ people in your life. You want to be supportive but you also don’t want to give up your belief in God and the Bible.
We get it.
And we not only believe it’s possible, we’ve seen it work over and over again.
Diving deeply into your support of LGBTQ+ people can actually transform your faith making it deeper and more robust than ever before. It can give you a whole new understanding of the Bible and God. You don’t have to give up either your faith or your loved ones.
These resources will show you how.
Clobber The Clobber Passages
Put the clobber passages to rest for good by learning how they’re misinterpreted, traps to avoid when talking about them, and how to lead people to LGBTQ affirmation
Whether you’re new to being affirming, on the journey to getting there, or you’ve been a supporter forever, you probably get asked a lot about those pesky verses that seem to condemn LGBTQ+ folks.
In this workshop, we go over all of them (including the ones used against transgender folks) and share why the people who use them to condemn LGBTQ+ folks are wrong.
But then we go two steps further showing you how even these passages might have a liberating message and how to use everything you’re learning to have more effective conversations with people still on the journey.
Your presentation really captured my imagination.
Journey Into THe Bible
Refuse to surrender the Bible! Reclaim the Bible from those who would use it to oppress and discover liberating messages that are relevant to you today
Whether you grew up as a Bible quizzer, sitting in the pews some Sundays, or outside of the church entirely you’ve probably absorbed a bunch of things about what the Bible says. You might be struggling to read it on your own or to engage with it now that you’re affirming of LGBTQ+ people.
In this self-paced course, you get the tools you need to really engage with the Bible and understand it. More than just a “here’s what it says and here’s what it means”, this course is all about giving you the tools to find that out for yourself.
You’ll learn about historical and political context, types of literature, and so much more. So dive in and learn how to love this incredible book!
Kind Homophobia & Transphobia Is Still Evil
Love the sinner, hate the sin. I support you but I don’t support your lifestyle. I love you but I can’t use the right pronouns for you. You are welcome in my house, but you and your partner can’t share a bed. I wish you every happiness in your life but I won’t be attending your wedding.
Do any of these sound familiar to you?
What I Learned About Faith & Justice from my Transgender Friends
Before Micah and I were best friends, we were accidental roommates.
My friendship with him me me realize that even though I am bisexual, there is still more for me to learn. He transformed the way that I see the world and gave me new tools for organizing for justice.
You Can't Build a Bridge Between LGBTQ People & The Church
Wait! It’s not what you might be thinking! We say this not because the two are incompatible, on the contrary, you can’t build a bridge because there aren’t two sides.
This type of language, while well-intentioned can actually harm LGBTQ+ people.
Ally Is An Action
