“Inflammatory language that politicians & other public figures
frequently use to denigrate members of the LGBTQ community
creates a hostile environment that fuels anti-gay stigma,
promotes radicalization and, in a worst-case scenario,
can lead to the kind of deadly violence seen at the Club Q.”

Dear Lay and Ordained members of inclusive Catholic communities:
Our “Prophet Pod”—our Inclusive Catholic Creative Cluster on Collective Prophetic Speech—crafted a 1.5-page response to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver’s recent 17-page document on trans students in its Catholic schools and the November 19 Club Q shooting in the neighboring diocese of Colorado Springs.
On the one-month anniversary of this tragic shooting, our Prophet Pod will share a 1.5-page statement against anti-LGBTQIA+ hate speech and violence, through social media ad buys.
You can read the statement here.
