And featuring Rev. Elizabeth Edman, author of Queer Virtue:

Parity invites seminarians, clergy, academics, LGBTQ people of faith, allies and the LGBTQ Faith Curious to this conference with optional retreat which will:

Empower emerging and seated LGBTQ and allied faith leaders through cutting edge instruction in timely topics to enrich their ministry;

Connect faith leaders and allies with local and national leaders and organizations for increased impact, mutual support, collaboration and LGBTQ faith community strengthening;

Highlight LGBTQ faith leaders and their work to instruct and inspire attendees and allies with the latest, visionary theories, discoveries and strategies.

Attendees may choose a conference only option or a full retreat option.

Parity helps attendees fundraise to cover the cost of attendance, and if needed, transportation.  Our goal is to support each and every person to attend our retreats and conferences--it wouldn't be the same without you!
