HRC PRESIDENT ALPHONSO DAVID (@ALPHONSODAVID) AND FATHER MARTINI SHAW ON BRINGING LGBTQ BLACK PEOPLE OF FAITH OUT OF THE SHADOWS: “As Black people of faith, we have seen and experienced that sometimes, LGBTQ people are searching for a God that they have been told does not love them back,” write David and Father Shaw. “But we, and our community, know that in reality, God is love, God is acceptance and God is inclusion. If we are going to spread that message of radical love, and continue to win hearts and minds to advance LGBTQ equality, we must bring the struggles of Black LGBTQ people of faith out of the shadows and into the light.” Read more from The Grio.
