Testimonials

Our workshops reach LGBTQ and allied people from all walks of life and from coast to coast. While averaging two national tours a year, we are able to host workshops for many Universities, colleges, churches and community centers. Still, we retain a focus in our home town, Philadelphia, and host 8-10 week workshop series for youth and adults.

An attendee from our workshop series at the Attic Youth Center in Philadelphia said this:
I had a Christian person tell me I was an abomination to this world and that made me feel like I didn’t belong on this earth, like God didn’t love me for who I was…I understand now that people judge me when they tell me about my life. I can change my life around and still be myself. I can go back to being a Christian and I’m not an abomination.”

An attendee from our adult workshop series at the Church of the Holy Trinity said this:
“The Spirited Show and Tell Workshop is a great way to be spiritually open and find acceptance, which can sometimes be difficult for people in the LGBTQ community. This workshop, for the first time in my 30+ years of life, helped me verbalize my experience being a queer Christian. I found it liberating to share and hear formative spiritual experiences that have had a hand in shaping a large part of who I am. I also found comfort in knowing that there was a safe space created by members of the LGBTQ community interested in our spiritual health. I learned so much about myself and felt affirmed for the first time that I can remember.”

And that they can have a wonderful, vibrant relationship with God just as they are 😉 Keep up the righteous work!” -Don Mueller, Biola University
