LEGABIBO, House of Rainbow Fellowship and Local Religious Leaders Gather to Talk About Sexuality, Faith and Human Rights.

Yesterday, July 29th 2015, local LGBTIQ rights group LEGABIBO and the House of Rainbow met up with local religious leaders, the LGBTIQ community and parents and friends of the LGBTIQ community to talk about the relations between spirituality, faith and sexuality. Host Rev. Jide Macaulay from the House of Rainbow Fellowship, which is an inclusive and affirming religious community open and welcome to all people including sexual minorities and marginalized people, a periodic gathering of “People of Faith” for “Prayer and Praise”, which focuses on the person’s journey towards reconciliation of sexuality and spirituality, said that it imperative for the LGBTIQ community to affirm their faith and sexuality and not be allowed to feel like outcasts by others who misinterpret the Bible. The openly gay African theologian further added that it is time that the African queer theology is taken serious and even taught to scholars in Universities. Local religious leader Rev Hambira from the UCCSA church said that it is time that the church welcomes the LGBTIQ community and not shun them because of they love. He encouraged the LGBTIQ community to let them (the religious leaders) know what they want to see in the church change.
