There are many queer people who are deeply religious and actively involved in their faith communities. The number of religious communities that openly welcome and support LGBT congregants is growing, but news of this is not reaching the greater society. Breakthrough 2 Love is trying to change that. This campaign is based on "The Breakthrough Conversation" - and idea that change happens when people of faith have open and honest conversations about LGBT inclusion and equality with their friends and family.
The Coalition of Welcoming Congregations of the Bay Area, a program of The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry, The Umoja Project, California Faith for Equality, and Progressive Christians Uniting are teaming up in coalition to encourage local congregations to speak and live out inclusive love beginning the weekend of Valentine's Day (Feb 15-17) through the end of Pride month (June 30).
