Fordham University’s Department of Theology and the Church of Saint Francis Xavier present LGBTQ+ Catholic Activism: A Global Conversation
Wednesday, June 26, 2019 | 7 – 8:30 p.m.
12th-Floor Lounge | Leon Lowenstein Center | Lincoln Center Campus
Fordham University | New York, NY
The Catholic Church is undergoing a period of revolutionary change in its relationship to the LGBTQ+ community. Parishes and dioceses around the world are discerning and implementing new forms of pastoral ministry and advocacy on behalf of the LGBTQ+ Catholic community. What does this movement look like outside of the U.S.? How can members of the LGBTQ+ community in the U.S. support activists around the world?
Join us for this important conversation moderated by Craig Ford, Ph.D., postdoctoral teaching fellow in Fordham’s Department of Theology, and Jamie Manson, editor and writer for the National Catholic Reporter. Panelists will include Carlos Navarro, founder of Efetá-Mexico City LGBT Catholic Group; Argel Tuason, chair of the Asia Pacific Rainbow Catholics Network (Philippines); and Ssenfuka Joanita Warry, executive director of Freedom and Roam Uganda (FARUG). View more information on the moderators and panelists.
