The 2023 PRIDE Interfaith Service will be held at upRising (8601 S. 1st St., Austin) on Sunday, August 6, at 5:00 pm. This year's theme is HISstory, HERstory, THEIRstory, OURstory and we will gather to celebrate the faith traditions and spirituality of the LGBTQ+ community.
Our intentions are to...
--claim for ourselves the sacred belonging and spiritual worth that conservative voices try to deny us
-- provide an opportunity for those who have been turned away from spiritual community to re-engage in a safe, meaningful way
--acknowledge that spiritual and religious traditions and practices can transcend political and social divisions and unite us
-- share stories of inspiration and hope from diverse people who follow a variety of spiritual paths
We still seek participants from the following groups and others we may not have listed: African indigenous religions, Native American, Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Confucianism, Hindu, Muslim, Jain, Jewish, New Thought, Pagan, Shinto, Sikh, Unitarian Universalist, Wicca, Zoroastrian, and Spiritually Independent. If you would like more information, please send an email inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year's event will feature the return of the Interfaith Community Choir, Inspiring stories from the LGBTQ+ community and much more.
