2nd – 21st Feb 2017

Christian Voices Coming Out is a heritage project capturing the stories of pioneering LGBT Christian activists, advocates and allies over the past 40 years. These individuals have worked for the acceptance, affirmation and welcome of queer and transgender people. They have challenged the churches when they have diminished and dismissed their lives, loves and identities. and borne witness to a Christian faith built on principles of justice, compassion and love.

The exhibition includes the stories of many LGBT Christian activists, advocates and allies from a wide variety of church backgrounds, celebrating 40 years of prophecy, protest and pride.
