Join Teresa Thompson and Priscilla Cheng as they lead conversations about what Pride means for people living as their full selves as people who are queer, of color, and of faith.
About this group: At a time when conservative religious activism profoundly influences the US political landscape, the lives and values of people of faith are often portrayed as separate and distinct from those of LGBTQ+ people and people of color. Yet, many people exist at the intersection of these realities - the lives and identities and realities of queer people of color of faith bear witness to experience beyond the supposed barriers between these categories.
In this series, Priscilla Cheng, LMFT and Teresa Thompson, LCSW lead conversations about what Pride means for people living as their full selves as people who are queer, of color, and of faith. Community members and mental health professionals alike are invited to attend - join in on the discussion of what Pride means to us this season, and how mental health professionals and allies can be of support to the community.
