It’s 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK and so this February’s LGBTQ history month is something special. The Village MCC is organizing the faith days for the B Right On festival in Brighton. We have named them Soul Safari Sundays as we’ve invited a huge variety of groups to share their faith and gifts.
The event takes place on a 400 seater marquee beside Brighton’s AIDS memorial. There are events every day and The Village MCC was asked to organise the faith days over the first three Sundays in February. You might remember that I asked if anyone would like to bring a workshop and I’m pleased to say that Rev. Shanon Ferguson and Rev. Peta Evans are both bringing very exciting workshops to the event.
Overall there are more than 17 events over the three days, including concerts, meditations, workshops, faith experiences, and fun stuff too.
Please find attached the event posters. If anyone would like to come along then every event is free and everyone is welcome.
As far as I’m aware I think that this is the first time that so many different groups have come together for an LGBT focused faith event in Brighton. There are Quakers, Pagans, Buddhists, Jews, Christians, (and hopefully Muslims), as well as a Choir, a performance artist, Radical Faeries, MCC, A Death Cafe’, Alistair Appleton with a mind/body workshop and meditation, and more besides!
