Pride Online Forum: The Polity and Politics of Belonging
The LGBTQ+ Working Group of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island is pleased to invite you to an online conversation with the Rev. Deon K. Johnson on June 7th at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern Time).
When consecrated, Bishop-Elect Deon will not only be our youngest bishop, but also will be the first openly gay and Caribbean-born bishop in the Episcopal Church.
Born in Barbados, Bishop-Elect Deon has deep social and family ties to our Diocese, which is largely comprised of parishioners who hail from the Caribbean.
The Q&A style conversation will be moderated by our own Mthr. Cecily P. Broderick y Guerra, a long-time member of our clericus, and by Darren J. Glenn, the Programs Director of the Caribbean Equality Project, which serves LGBTQ people of Caribbean descent here in NYC and beyond.
The event is being co-sponsored by the Transgender Resource Center of Long Island, the Caribbean Equality Project, and is being hosted and co-sponsored by our Pro-Cathedral (St. Ann & the Holy Trinity) in Brooklyn Heights.
We are honored to host our brother-in-Christ, Bishop-Elect Deon, for what we know will be a meaningful and spirit-filled conversation!
