Join Rev. Jason Carson Wilson, a same-gender loving Black United Church of Christ minister and policy advocate, as we explore the reality that being a person of faith and being LGBTQIA aren’t mutually exclusive. Claiming that not all are fabulous creations of the Source, known to us by many names, is the only abomination. Rev. Jason Carson Wilson, a Black queer liberation theologian, will draw from his life experience and scholarship to show that one, indeed, can be faithful and fabulous.

All are welcome, and it is FREE. The Illinois Interfaith Conference is hosted by the Illinois Interfaith Challenge Initiative, a partnership between Interfaith in Action (RSO), Muslim Student Association (RSO), the University of Illinois Diversity & Social Justice Education, University Housing Social Justice & Leadership Education, the University YMCA, and Illini Hillel/Cohen Center for Jewish Life. The conference is funded in part by Student Cultural Programming Fee. Follow us on Facebook to receive updates on the Illinois Interfaith Conference 2018.
