Virtual Pride Wall
In years past, LOVEboldly has set up Graffiti Walls at Pride parades for LGBTQ+ people to share their stories of hurt, rejection, love & acceptance from the church & their families. These walls have served as reminders to other LGBTQ+ that they are not alone in their experiences & as examples to non-LGBTQ+ people of the joy, pain & hope that LGBTQ+ people experience. Though we can't have our typical Pride walls this year, we wanted to create a way for you to share your experiences with others as a way to encourage and inspire compassion.
Click the link below to share your honest (and anonymous) responses to a different question each week of Pride month. At the end of each week, we will compile the responses and share them here and on our social media channels at the end of the month.
What would bring you back to church?
This Pride month, we recognize the pain that many LGBTQ+ people have experienced at the hands of their family members and the church. We apologize, mourn with you and commit to do better.
