A Black Church Movement For The LGBT Community!
For many, the very idea of an African American pastor or clergyperson publicly embracing LGBT equality is unimaginable. You know the story; the Black Church is conservative and homophobic. That story is shifting. While the larger society has grown in support of LGBT people and their families, pastors and church members in black religious settings have engaged in 'Many Voices' dialogues, seminars, and discussions, and forged deep relationships over the last four years.

Now three are speaking out through Many Voices' video campaign launched on October 7. The campaign features the voices of Southern Black clergy who have broken through disbelief and resignation. These clergy tell how they hold fast to their faith and support LGBT people and their families.
