An Overnight Conference for Translesbigay/queer Youth
(endorsed by the Boston Area Youth Organizing Project, BYOP)
In celebration of queer youth we (Jason Lydon and Kate Long, two Divinity Students at Andover Newton Theological School and Harvard Divinity School) will be hosting a conference from Nov. 16 at 7pm till Nov. 17th at 7pm at the Community Church of Boston (565 Boylston Street in Copley Square). This conference will be a celebration of queer youth and religion. We will look at how one can read all of the major religions as queer positive. We will look at the faith and practice of queer youth and figure out how to find queer identity within one's own faith. This will not be about converting anyone to a particular religion or even to religion at all. This is a place to explore together this concept of religion that is so often used against us. It's time to turn the tables around and create a radical queer understanding of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. Food will be provided and registration is FREE!!!!
