NEW YORK - PRDelivery -- In partnership with Union Theological Seminary's Center for Community Engagement & Social Justice (CCESJ), Pride in the Pews will gather Black faith leaders, churchgoers, activists, and academics to enumerate practical tools, strategies, and frameworks to bridge the gapping gap between the Black Church and LGBTQ+ Community.

Over 850,000 Black LGBTQ+ people identify as religious. Yet, out of the eight historically Black Christian denominations, none (ZERO) of them are LGBTQ+ affirming.

"We advocate for change within the Black Church for the Black Queer community," says Rev. Karmen Michael Smith, Executive Director of CCESJ and author of Holy Queer: The Coming Out of Christ.

WHO: Rev. Karmen Michael Smith, Rev. Don Abram, Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart, Very Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, Rev. Fred Davie, Rev. Dr. Brianna K. Parker, Rev. Carmarion Anderson-Harvey, Bishop Keith McQueen, Pastor Kristian Smith, Kim Daily, Pastor William Anthony Ellis Jr., Rev. Quincy James Rineheart, Ph.D. Candidate, Rev. Stephen J. Thurston III, Rev. Dr. Timothy Adkins-Jones, Bishop Clarence Laney, and Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis. More about the speakers here
