Quilliam Interfaith Conference - Warwick University

Quilliam Foundation’s LGBT+ Interfaith Conference

In conjunction with the StandUp Foundation, Quilliam Foundation organised a day long Interfaith Conference to bring together individuals from different parts of the LGBT+ and faith communities. 

Held at the University of Warwick, I was asked to open the conference and give a talk about “Religion, homophobia and bullying” to attendees from a range of different backgrounds, religions and cultures. As part of my session I played our Foundation’s short film, “The Search for Sunrise“, which is also the same film I know take to schools across the UK.

The conference’s intended aim was to demonstrate interfaith (including no faith) solidarity with the LGBT+ community, and that bullying or threatening behaviour/language should never be tolerated.
