Reconciling Faith
and Identity

God made you. You matter. There are no barriers between you,
God, and the whole, full life you are called to live. 

PARITY’S LGBT FAITH AND SOCIAL JUSTICE INSTITUTE PRESENTS:

Emerging Pastors and Faith Leaders Retreat
BE THE HOPE:  

Living a Faith That Is Queer, Scandalous, and Strong

Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Glitter+ash wednesday was a resounding success!

Your loving support has provided a visible and tangible witness to love for LGBTQ+ people of faith and their allies - all over the world!

Parity staff and volunteers shipped ashes for 15,000 people in 29 different states and three countries, to 12 different denominations and 150 sites.

Our Mission

 
 

We work and pray for reconciliation, within our communities and within ourselves, so that we can create a world where gender and sexual identity are not barriers to living the whole, full lives that we are called to by God.

Testimonials

I attended your workshop. It’s what I’ve been craving all my life - to find a group of people who don’t think I can’t be who I am while still identify as a spiritual/religious person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to attending future Parity events. Can’t thank you enough.
— Mariaisabel, Youth
For the first time since I’ve come out, I have a place where everyone is queer, and I am completely safe. I don’t have to ask or question for a second whether someone will accept me. It was the most beautiful thing I could have asked for.
— Anonymous, Emerging LGBTQ Pastor
