Faith Submerged

Manny Andrade presents 
“Faith Submerged”
With Elizabeth DeCoux as Worship Leader

“Faith Submerged” will explore the pattern of communities of faith to submerge and erase the visibility and contributions of LGBTQ people. This disenfranchisement historically and in the present is not limited to a few movements. We will explore the importance and value of Queer Affirming Spirituality’s in line with the UU Principles.
