LGBT students at major Christian schools

LGBT students at major Christian schools

What is it like to be LGBT Christian attending a major Christian University? It’s hard. There are lots of tears. And there’s no one to talk to as people are trying to come to terms with their orientation. If you’d like a window into the experience check out the new file “Let Your Light Shine”.

“The documentary “Let Your Light Shine” will examine the intersecting histories of Wheaton College, evangelical Christianity, gay civil rights and how LGBT students and alumni are forced to struggle with or repudiate their religion.”

The willingness of LGBT alumni to reach out to the present student body is both moving and heroic. Do watch the film.

We’ve had other coverage of this story.

Inspiring. I went over to the web site, and on the list of signatories I noticed at least one Episcopal priest, Susan Buchanan of Christ Church, North Conway, NH (and I found both her and her congregation quite welcoming when I passed through there on vacation last summer).

What a powerful video. Thanks so much for posting it. Deeply moving.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
