Join our six Spring Sessions for the Faith & Belief Forum’s LGBTQ+ Interfaith Network

The Faith & Belief Forum’s LGBTQ+ Interfaith Network is a space for LGBTQ+ people from different faiths, beliefs and backgrounds, to come together in a friendly environment. We use interfaith activities and methods to explore personal stories of faith and belief, learn from each other’s traditions, and build solidarity and community. We work in collaboration with a range of brilliant single faith and regional LGBTQ+ organisations.

Thanks to funding from Consortium’s LGBT+ Futures Intersection Fund, in Spring 2021 we are organising a series of six online sessions.  Each session will provide opportunities for reflection, connection, and learning from each other and special guests.  All sessions will include breakout rooms for those who want to network in smaller groups.

You are welcome to have your video switched on or off, depending on your preferences.

 

Session 4: Representation in Children’s Books with Sarah Hagger-Holt

The books we read and the stories we hear as children shape our understanding of ourselves and the world around us, but we rarely see positive representation of LGBTQ+ people of faith. This workshop explores our personal experience of seeing (or not seeing) LGBTQ+ people of faith in the books we read as children (or with our own children), discusses why this matters to us and shares ideas to highlight good examples and improve representation overall.
