8:00 AM - 9:15 AM
Join us for a discussion about internal and external conflicts for African-American sexual minorities that are created when religious and sexual orientation identities do not reconcile with each other. Learn about coping strategies used to bring about a more harmonious coexistence of those separate identities and how ministers are actively counseling African-American sexual minorities to bring about spiritual healing and identity cohesion. Presentation and discussion 8:00am - 9:15am. Breakfast will be served.
Please RSVP by May 14th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
