Why Amplify Queer Faith?

LGBTIQA+ peoples have always been a part of every faith, religious and spiritual communities.

This exhibition with the feature subjects, brings together many faith and cultural backgrounds – including Aboriginal, Christian, Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim. It is a way of us amplifying the often hidden voices and faces of LGBTIQA+ people of faith and spirituality that are such a crucial part of our total human story.

Serving as a pilot campaign project, this exhibition celebrates the resilience and flourishing of LGBTIQA+ people and communities of faith and spirituality, and their allies, who despite prejudice, persecution, violence and discrimination are shining their light for a better world.

These portraits and stories of faith serve as a prophetic witness to LGBTIQA+ people of faith’s commitment to a better world, where every life is dignified, valued, honoured and celebrated.
