Paying a Visit to the Council of Europe
by Wielie Elhorst
Well, that was a very interesting and informative experience. It had been in my agenda for quite some weeks, but, for a long time, it was not clear exactly what I was going to do in Strasbourg for the European Forum on 22 and 23 April. It is probably illustrative of ordinary European Forum members like me trying to find their way into the wonderful world of the larger and more important European institutions that, in the long run, can be helpful for the cause of LGBT Christians/believers. I was invited by our project coordinator Florin Buhuceanu as a member of the Political Advocacy Working Group of the Forum.
Queer Ways of Theology—International Conference in Warsaw
Saturday, 14th March 2015, 9:00am–6:00pm, Austrian Cultural Centre, 7/9 Prozna Street. Conference in English. Possibility to use simultaneous translation into Polish.
What is Queer Theology? What are its main variants and strategies? Why is it important for LGBTQ people? How does it challenge traditional churches and their teaching? These questions will be answered by speakers from the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, and Poland. In Poland, Queer Theology has just made its first steps.
This conference is an important event in Poland, where Queer Theology practically does not exist at theological colleges,
explains Artur Barbara Kapturkiewicz, the main organizer from Wiara i Tęcza.
