Event description

Description

This event is BSL signed.

Far from being a thing of the past, faith is on the rise and 84% of the global population identifies with a religious group. What does this mean for queer folk, especially queer folk of faith?

Come along to Leaf on Bold Street and join in the conversation as we hear diverse voices explore topics relating to queer and faith identities, considering and celebrating what it means to be an LGBTQIA+ person of faith today. Everyone is welcome from all faiths and none!

Queer Faith Voices is a regional collaboration between the Diocese of Liverpool, Edge Hill University, Homotopia Festival, the Liverpool Queer Collective and the Open Table Network.

Tickets cost £5 (plus 98p booking fee) which includes a welcome drink and canapés and there is a bar available for additional drinks.
