Rediscovering Family

Rediscovering Family: Understanding and Celebrating LBGTQI+ Perspectives is a 6-hour forum featuring Amber Cantorna, National Speaker, Leader, and Author of Refocusing My Family: Coming Out, Being Cast Out, and Discovering the True Love of God, as well as the upcoming book, "Unashamed: A Coming Out Guide for LGBTQ Christians.and Dr. Stephen Marshall-Ward, creator of “The Architecture of Family, and the art of self-discovery: Families. Celebrating. Freedom.”  and Director of the Institute for Social Change through the Arts. Coming out is something to be celebrated. Much progress has been made for the LGBTQI+ community yet so much remains to be done.  Many such people still suffer from the pressures of living within a conservative environment and many LGBTQI+ people are in unsafe living situations. This event is designed to bring people together, encourage discussion, create safe space for continued conversation around LGBTQI+ persons and their families, and to provide resources useful to the LGBTQI+ community and the people who love them.

During the event you will have the opportunity in discussion groups to interact with other LGBTQI+ people and their allies navigating different stages of coming out, and understanding one’s self. You will meet people interested in helping you on your journey to honest, open, celebrated living. If you are an ally, this event will help you to reach greater understanding on how to love and support LGBTQI+ persons. You will also have the opportunity to hear Amber and Stephen’s stories, as well as dialogue with them in a panel discussion and through separate Q&A’s.

The event will be held on Saturday November 17th from 2:30pm-9:00pm at All Pilgrim’s Christian Church 500 Broadway East, Seattle, WA 98102.

Scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis, please let us know if you would like to attend but would need financial assistance by contacting us here. The opportunity to fund someone else attending the event is made possible during registration, and could make a significant difference in someone’s life.
