How can someone be Catholic and lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT)? Many of us try to repress our sexuality in order to be perfect Catholics. When that doesn’t work, we seek community outside the Church. We tend either to choose one and reject the other or to compartmentalize these parts of our lives. This does not work! We cannot truly be ourselves until we begin the journey to integrate faith and sexuality. In this workshop, a diverse panel of Catholics, educators, minorities and LGBT persons will share how we seek to live authentically as we journey to claim our whole identity with integrity.
