Some context...Australian Catholics for Equality are members from the diverse spectrum of Australian society that celebrates the gifts and the lived experiences of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer (LGBTIQ) Catholics as part of our lives.
Our journey as faith-filled and faithful Catholics from this rich tapestry of experiences and backgrounds, calls us to seek equality and justice with LGBTIQ citizens in our church and society.
But there's a problemIgnorance and bigotry have often dominated the conversation of what it is to be Catholic and LGBTIQ, and mainstream Catholic media often does not acknowledge the lived experiences of LGBTIQ Catholics, our families, friends and our allies.
Here's what we're doing about it
We're lifting our voices together, running campaigns on multiple issues that effects the lives of LGBTIQ Catholics, their friends, family and allies. Partnering with community and advocacy groups in bringing together forward thinking Catholics from all walks of life to pray and work for our shared humanity, toward peace with justice.
