ADORE LA @ Trans Pride

Our time at Trans Pride was amazing. There are so many queer people and allies of faith who came by the booth to share their stories and their struggles. So many people talked about moving from other states to find a place that is safer and has more opportunities for them. Many fought tears as they shared about experiences with reparative therapy and forced conversion by family and church. I realized that even though each of us have a distinct story, a common thread runs through: we are each just striving to be wholly ourselves and find a community to receive us with love, understanding, and radical inclusivity. I think that ADORE LA is that kind of community. After seeing all the volunteers talk with people throughout the day, the presence of God is so apparent. Amen and thank you.
