Hi there Soulforce members....found your site whilst researching for my dissertation...such a fantastic and much needed organisation (hopefully i'll find something similar in the UK...or just start one myself!). My dissertation is going to be an attempt at researching an answer to a question like: Faith groups and lesbians: inequality forever? (question to be developed with further research!)...oh, by the way I study social science, community development and youth work.
I'm coming from a kind of personal standpoint as i've had real tough experiences in the christian church (new frontiers international) and i'm hoping that by doing a dissertation in this area that I can reach some personal resolve...whilst also calling for more action to be taken to combat the oppression of LGBT individuals...I also see it as my way of contributing to this cause in a relentless and non-violent way!!
If you have any questions or comments then i'd really appreciate them...I need lots of input to get me thinking!! Also don't mind being challenged as I belive I can really grow and learn from each and every one of you...I will try and float around the forums...inputting where I can too!!
Thank you for reading. Gem.
