In honor of Queer Youth of Faith Day, GLAAD is convening interfaith leaders to discuss youth advocacy and ministry. These six experts will take on the spiritual issues facing today's queer youth, the impact of anti-LGBTQ legislation targeting transgender youth, and best practices for holding sacred spaces for LGBTQ youth to grow into faithful leaders in our religions and our society. Queer Youth of Faith Day is an online campaign that celebrates queer youth of all religions.
