Saturday & Sunday June 24-25, 2017
Rita Goldberger will be coordinating United in Spirit’s LGBT affirming religious info booth at the San Francisco Pride Festival, Saturday and Sunday, June 24-25, 2017.
LGBT affirming churches, synagogues, and other religious groups in the Bay Area are invited to participate.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE BOOTH?
We will be spreading the word about LGBT affirming congregations and providing information from many of the local churches, synagogues and other groups who welcome LGBT people. Volunteers will help answer questions and hand out a brochure with contact information for national and local LGBT affirming churches and religious groups.
We also have national referrals for denominations which may have no LGBT-friendly churches (such as Affirmation for Mormons), and for national groups organized to bring about change within the structure of their denominations (such as Methodists and Seventh Day Adventists.) And we have referrals for other LGBT people of faith, such as Muslims and Hindus. There’s a place for everyone!
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
You can participate in several ways – whichever works for you:
- PROVIDE LITERATURE:
You can provide informative and welcoming literature about your church, etc., to put on the table to share with visitors.
- Help STAFF BOOTH:
You can send volunteers to staff the booth during all or part of the day, to talk to people and answer questions.
Please contact Rita Goldberger to schedule a time to be at the booth or to arrange for your church’s information to be distributed there.
