Replacements, Ltd. Welcomes National Photo Exhibit Focusing on LGBT People of Faith
Exhibit fights religion-based homophobia
GREENSBORO, N.C., September 11, 2013 – Replacements, Ltd. is proud to host the traveling photo exhibit “We Have Faith” from September 25 through October 9, 2013.
“We Have Faith” marks the latest effort from the Family Diversity Project, a non-profit organization devoted to educating people of all ages on diversity. The exhibit features well-known lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and allied clergy and people of many faiths and denominations, including Christians, Jews and Muslims. Through this series of images and stories, organizers are striving to fight religion-based homophobia.
“So many people cite religious conviction as the basis for their opposition to the rights of marriage and full equality for LGBT people,” says Rev. Lou McAlister East, co-pastor of the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant. “As a Presbyterian minister, this saddens me because my faith compels me to work for full equality. ‘We Have Faith’ is a beautiful expression countering faith-based prejudice that I think will open the hearts and minds of those who see these lovely photos. We are very grateful to Replacements, Ltd., along with Jim Baulding and Gene Simpson, for bringing this exhibit to North Carolina.”
“We Have Faith” will be displayed in the museum area of Replacements’ retail store, located at 1089 Knox Rd, McLeansville, N.C., 27301. The store is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; admission to the exhibit is free.
