Navigating Christmas

While Christmas may bring joy into numerous hearts around the world, the holiday season can also be a very difficult time for LGBTQ+ people trying to navigate family and friends that just don’t understand.

For those of us who come from families of strong faith, it can be even more challenging to be authentic and transparent at a time where we all wish things were merry and bright.

What are the holidays like with your family? What would you say to a family member who needs help understanding how faith and sexuality intersect? Those are just a few questions we asked LGBTQ+ Christians to answer in this video.

Let’s talk about our experiences with family during the holidays. #EmbraceYourStory
