SPECIAL EVENT: Believe Out Loud Speaks at THE LARAMIE PROJECT June 25, 2014

We’re honored to welcome James Rowe and Alison Amyx of Believe Out Loud to The Seeing Place, where they will be our special guest speakers on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, immediately following a performance of the award-winning play, THE LARAMIE PROJECT.

During this intimate post-show discussion, James and Alison will lead our audience through a conversation about faith and sexual identity, exploring the many spiritual themes of the play and their modern relevance in today's society. 

Believe Out Loud is an online network that empowers Christians to work for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality. Reaching nearly one million individuals a week, they work to elevate the people and places where Christianity and LGBT justice intersect.Through their new-media platform, friends and allies gather, share, grow, build community and take action. If you are new to LGBT inclusion and Christianity, they are a safe space to learn about how others tie their faith to LGBT equality. Everyone is invited to their table.

About Believe Out Loud:
Publicly launched in 2009, they have worked to support conflicted Christians and advance the decades-long movement for LGBT-inclusion within mainline Protestantism. Today, Believe Out Loud represents the breadth of Christianity – from Catholics to Evangelicals, Baptists to Presbyterians, to individuals who are Christian but have no formal faith community. They are also home to atheists, agnostics and those from other religious traditions who share their passion for LGBT equality. Their members are united behind a simple pledge: to stand up for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality in their churches, their communities, their schools and their workplaces.
