Conference program and registration
May is coming closer. The preparation team is very busy in building an attractive programme for you. We will give you an impression of our plans and an overview of how the conference week is planned.
Then a word about registration. As you don't have to plan your journey, just block your diary. We still need some time to sort a few things out before we open registration. We hope to do that at the end of February, maybe the beginning of March.
Press Release: European LGBTIQ Christians Welcome Strong EU “LGBTIQ Equality Strategy”
More Support of LGBTIQ People of Faith Is Badly Needed
The Board of the European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups welcomes the new EU “LGBTIQ Equality Strategy” for 2020–2025 issued on 12 November 2020. Serious challenges for all LGBTIQ people are identified and actions proposed. Many intersections in the lives of LGBTIQ people are mentioned. The European Forum believes a stronger emphasis on the intersection of sexual orientation, gender identity, and religion & belief is needed to face contemporary dangers to all LGBTIQ people.
The thema of the online conference of the European Forum, organised from the Netherlands, is Strong Voices!
40 organisations, 150 persons from the whole of Europe
LGBTI-free zones in Poland, the Nashville statement in the Netherlands, above-average suicide among transgender people across Europe, campaigns against "non-traditional family relationships". Not every part of Europe is a safe place for LGBTI people and the climate is even getting worse in some areas.
We want to make a Strong Voice heard against the nationalist voices in Eastern, Central and Western Europe. It is our belief that God cares for the weak and oppressed in society and calls Christians, churches and organizations to look to after each other and to exclude no one.
