All are invited to Rediscovering Family, from 2:30 pm to 9 pm Saturday, November 17, at All Pilgrim’s Christian Church, 500 Broadway East, Seattle, WA 98102.
This six-hour forum features Amber Cantorna, national speaker, leader and author of “Refocusing My Family: Coming Out, Being Cast Out, and Discovering the True Love of God,” and the upcoming book, "Unashamed: A Coming Out Guide for LGBTQ Christians.” Dr. Stephen Marshall-Ward, creator of “The Architecture of Family, and the art of self-discovery: Families Celebrating Freedom” and Director of the Institute for Social Change through the Arts joins her.
Coming out is something to be celebrated. Much progress has been made for the LGBTQI+ community and so much remains to be done. Many still suffer from the pressures of living within a conservative environment and many LGBTQI+ people live in unsafe living situations. This event is designed to bring people together, encourage discussion, create safe space for continued conversation around LGBTQI+ persons and their families and provide resources useful to the LGBTQI+ community and those who love them.
Interact with other LGBTQI+ people and their allies to navigate different stages of coming out and understanding one’s self. Meet people interested in helping you on your journey to honest, open, celebrated living. If you are an ally, reach greater understanding on how to love and support LGBTQI+ persons. Hear Amber and Stephen’s stories, and dialogue with them in a panel discussion and through separate Q&A’s.
