HRC, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and UNID@S Release New Bilingual Guide
June 30, 2011 by Sharon Groves, Director, Religion and Faith Program
HRC is proud to announce the release of it's latest guide and pastoral resource, A La Familia: A Conversation About Our Families, the Bible, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. LGBT people often face unique challenges in Latino/a families and churches. To help in the process of acceptance and inclusion, A La Familia is born out of a profound desire to faithfully integrate an excluded group of people back into the life of their churches and families. This bilingual guide was written by HRC Religion Council member Miguel De La Torre and jointly produced by HRC, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and UNID@S.
Conversations about sexuality, gender identity, faith, and family are essential for building and sustaining robust and vibrant communities that value the spiritual life of all its people. A La Familia, written by Latinos/as for Latinos/as will generate and support such conversations among Latino/a Protestant and Catholics about family, the Bible, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, and what God calls us to be to one another.
