Welcome

We welcome you to our site, LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent. We will be using this site to inform, educate, inspire and empower LGBT people of the Black community. Our desire, as LGBT people of faith, is to promote our visibility, educate about who we are, our needs, successes and circumstances. Our ultimate goal is to create an environment that is necessary for a healthy and productive community for us and our families.

Event: Faith as Our Anchor …

LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent is an organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and same gender loving people of African Descent and their allies formed to serve as ambassadors and educators to oppose discrimination, exclusion or intimidation of LGBT persons in our society and particularly in our church communities.

We are an open membership group and we welcome all to our monthly meetings. You will find the dates posted on the web page or face book page. We generally meet the second Wednesday of the month. We have divided ourselves into working committee to conduct the organization’s work. You can join us at our monthly meetings or join one of our working committees.

Who We Are
We are a group composed of clergy, divinity students, and faith leaders who represent diverse interdenominational religious institutions.  As people of faith, we believe in the spiritual values of love, inclusiveness, and respect for all people.

What We Propose To Do

  • provide accurate information and encourage frank dialogue to promote the spiritual values of love and inclusiveness;
  • work with clergy, lay leaders and all members of faith communities, especially those who are serving African Americans and others of African descent;
  • work with family members, professionals, and agencies involved with LGBT adults, youth, and seniors;
  • organize, conduct and lead community meetings, sermons, and informational workshops;
  • make videos and use the print media to advance personal fulfillment, committed relationships, and healthy families for all of God’s children.

We welcome working relationships with other groups and organizations that share similar missions. These relationships can take a variety of forms: sponorship of events, posting your events, presenting your organization or activity to the public.
