Faith and
LGBTQ+

Zak poses the ongoing question, will faith and LGBTQ+ ever get along? He discusses his personal experience about his chosen LGBTQ+ family, the challenges that we face growing up today and the leaders in religious groups that should often be responsible for achieving social cohesion. How do we use the term 'tolerance' in society? Why should we settle for just being tolerated? Every LGBTQ+ person should have the same opportunity to flourish and embrace their faith if they choose to do so.
