Join us for the 2018 Austin Pride Interfaith CELEBRATION on Sunday, August 5 at 4:00 p.m. at JCC Austin, 7300 Hart Ln, Austin, TX 78731.
The Pride Interfaith Celebration is supported by Austin PRIDE, sponsored by First United Methodist Church Austin, and organized by the Pride Interfaith Partnership of Austin—a group of volunteers who support safe spiritual environments in the Austin area where all people, regardless of difference, can come together to express oneness through love. We believe that love is love is love. We believe that being LGBTQiA+ and faith-minded are not mutually exclusive. We affirm that all LGBTQiA+ people and allies are beautifully created and worthy of unconditional love and respect. Learn how you can join the partnership and help spread the love! Contact us at PrideFaithATX@gmail.com.
Kat Macías is our featured speaker—they are a queer Puerto Rican and Cuban-American Jew-by-choice who has actively worked as an educator and organizer around issues of racial justice and LGBTQiA+ inclusion in Boston and Washington, D.C.
