OUTNight Board Picture 2

This is a weekly (sorry, it’s been about two weeks since the last one I put up) series of poster boards that members of The Marin Foundation had GLBT people in Boystown write on, to honestly answer questions regarding God, faith and religion.


What do you think about the Church?

A few of the Answers:

I heart the church
F*** the church, but I love the Lord
I don’t know?
A home left behind

We know what we need to do with these thoughts, feelings and reactions. If we can at least keep these words in our minds while building bridges, we’ll have a significant head start on many others who still believe GLBT people and straight Christians are starting from a level playing field—because we’re not.

Much love.
