Religion & Faith

Religion & Faith

People look to their faith as a source of guidance and inspiration – and LGBT people and our family and friends are no different. The HRC Religion and Faith Program is working to create a world where nobody is forced to choose between who they are, whom they love and what they believe. Thanks in part to this work, more and more faith communities aren’t simply engaging in dialogue around LGBT equality, they’re leading the conversation. They do this work not in spite of their religious beliefs but because of them.
