Finding a religious practice has long been a difficult area for openly Gay, Lesbian,Bisexual and Transgender people, even more so now that increasing numbers of us are raising families. With the arrival of children, many of us are seeking to raise children with the benefits of a religious community as part of their lives yet are hampered by bias, both overt and covert, against GLBT people. In response to this concern, Family Equality Council has launched a new LGBT family-inclusive faith curriculum focused on making faith communities more welcoming and affirming of LGBT families called All in God’s Family: Creating Allies for Our LGBT Families. All in God’s Family is a multimedia resource that seeks to engage faith communities and faith leaders in conversation on how best to embrace our families, from lessons on scripture to activity suggestions and more.
