Coming Out as a Person of Faith is a multi-media project revealing the experiences, stories, and perspectives of clergy, parents of gay and lesbians, and LBGT couples of faith who support the freedom to marry. The intention is to share with Oregonians how persons from a wide spectrum of Jewish and Christian faith traditions support the freedom to marry and how their faith informs their support of this issue.
Through film, audio, photographs and writing, the exhibit shows how people from a variety of Jewish and Christian traditions are on a journey of understanding, reconciling what they had been taught about gay and trans people with what they have seen to be true about their friends, family, peers and loved ones.
Clergy and people of faith from various Jewish and Christian faith traditions will discuss what they were taught growing up, how they reconciled their beliefs, how they came out—in some cases as a gay or trans person, and in other cases as a faith ally—and how their core religious beliefs inform their support of the freedom to marry.
