The Conversation Has Begun!

On March 23, 2015, BJUnity launched a new conversation in Greenville, SC when we brought author Matthew Vines to discuss his book God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships with an audience of approximately 250 people representing a cross-section of Greenville’s LGBT+ and faith communities.

Thank you to everyone who came!

Here are some photographs from the event:

Highlighting trans* invisibility in Greenville, we’ve also prepared this YouTube excerpt of local media personality Kimberly Kelly reading an anonymous statement from “William,” a local trans* Christian:

Special thanks to BJUnity Board member Bill Ballantyne for preparing this audio and visual presentation.
