Cambridge Interfaith Programme

 
Long grasses dominate the foreground, with a core of light in the mid-distance--with a subdued colour palette

A joint event with CamQueerHistory and Q+ as part of our World Interfaith Harmony Week schedule.

Following the success of their first event of this kind last year, CamQueerHistory join forces with the Cambridge Interfaith Programme and Q+ to bring an explicitly queer interfaith discussion forum to the Faculty of Divinity as part of CIP’s World Interfaith Harmony Week series.

In this speaker-led forum, we explore:

  • How have queer people within faith groups carved out affirming worship spaces for themselves and their communities?
  • What “queer time” can be traced through a faith’s history?
  • What queer ancestry, lineage and inheritance can be uncovered and celebrated from faiths which otherwise might seem monolithically unqueer?

Practicalities

Join us at the Faculty of Divinity from 5:15pm. There will be light refreshments to accompany a warm welcome. Invited speakers will open the discussion at around 5:30pm, drawing it to a close before 7pm.  

Further detail to be added.
