Religious Bullying No Time

Connections Program

Connections Conversation this month: Confronting Religious Bullying. What have you done when you see, hear, or experience bullying from sometimes well-meaning people in the name of their religion? How have you dealt with it? How have you moved on? Or not?

We may need some of those skills at Out! Raleigh. So let's share!


Connections is a program of the LGBT Center of Raleigh that provides an opportunity for LGBTQ people of all faith backgrounds (or no faith backgrounds) and our Allies to come together and have conversation about various common concerns and ideas. The idea is to promote communication across a diverse group of people and provide safe, nonjudgmental space for people to express themselves with each other. Reconciling who we are - our sexuality and our spirituality - can be very difficult; Connections can provide a place where we are able to talk openly about such issues as well as other topics that some might consider taboo. Connections is all about building relationships - NOT religion.

Sometimes, we will have a main speaker on a central topic, but most months, we'll just have conversations around the room with small groups and individuals.

This month, please bring some refreshments to share with others. Come and explore new Connections in our faith community.
