Queer Thinking: Religious Discrimination and the Fights Ahead
Whether it’s attempts to ‘cure’ individuals or experiences of discrimination at school or work, LGBTQI+ people face threats to their safety and wellbeing every day in the name of religion.
Gather your thoughts and join Mardi Gras in discussion at Queer Thinking: Religious Discrimination and the Fights Ahead, a forum where LGBTQI+ people of faith, religious leaders and activists discuss what it takes to build a strong movement for equality that includes us all.
The panel line-up includes: Karen Pack, a teacher who was sacked by a Sydney Christian college for being gay; Equality Australia Legal Director Ghassan Kassisieh; Australlia’s first gay Iman Nur Wasame; Australia’s first transgender priest Jo Inkpin and Dr Kerryn Phelps.
This special event presented in partnership by Mardi Gras and Equality Australia is an opportunity for the LGBTQI+ community to share their ideas and experiences on faith, sexuality and gender.
Bring your rage, your solidarity and your curiosity and learn how you can help ensure that we are all free to work, study and live with dignity.
This is a free event but registration is essential due to COVID-19 regulations.
