John J. McNeill on "Seeking God's Purpose in Our Sexual Lives"
Thursday, Mar. 1, 6 pm–7:30 pm
LGBT spiritual pioneer John J. McNeill will present a talk and workshop exploring the intersection of spirituality and sexuality from an LGBT perspective. (People of all faith traditions, or none, are welcome.)
An ordained priest, McNeill authored the groundbreaking 1976 book "The Church and the Homosexual," co-founded the New York City chapter of Dignity (an organization for LGBT Roman Catholics, which in turn helped found the National Gay Task Force, today known as the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and pioneered "gay liberation theology." In 1988, the Vatican ordered him expelled from the Society of Jesus — after nearly 40 years as a Jesuit — for refusing to give up all ministry to LGBT people. Today, as psychotherapist, moral theologian, teacher, scholar, writer, and lecturer, McNeill continues his three decades of LGBT-focused ministry. Additional information at: rainbowoffaith.org.
