Exhibition opening: Journeys of Faith

27 February 2016, 14:30
Apartheid Museum

Journeys of Faith is a fifteen-panel exhibition developed by GALA and the Apartheid Museum.

It tells the stories of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people who have struggled to reconcile their religious beliefs with their sexual orientation or gender identity. The stories come both from ordinary people and from those holding leadership positions within faith-based organisations. The exhibition also draws attention to religious institutions that continue to provide a safe haven for LGBTI members to practise their faith.

By sharing these stories, Journeys of Faith demonstrates the power of acceptance and love, and dispels the myth that religion is, by nature, at odds with sexual and gender diversity. The exhibition's compelling narratives and striking portraits provide a range of perspectives, thus challenging viewers to rethink their own understandings of faith, diversity and human rights.
