The LGBTIQ+ Christians in Central America: Realities, Struggles and Advancements from the Heart of the Continent
On campus and online
Join us for a lecture from Rev. Álvaro Durán, a theologian and the only openly gay pastor in El Salvador. He will discuss the impact of LGBTIQ+ Christian inclusion efforts, initiatives, and movements in the United States and how they affect the Central American context, the urgent evangelistic stewardship of congruence with God’s radical inclusion in Jesus Christ, and the importance of networking and fellowship for the development of an interwoven mission for a fully welcoming and affirming global Church. He takes a multidimensional approach to these experiences to explore and understand the importance of the ecclesiological momentum that arises from the deconstruction of religious prejudices related to human sexuality and the current struggle to forge a liberating, healing, transformative and expansive spirituality and faith communities from the margins.
