Taking Action

If members of the group are having trouble generating their own ideas for taking action, these suggestions can help get things started:

Study Biblical teachings related to LGBTQ equality and dignity in order to deepen your understanding of how some LGBTQ people are devoted Christians, while other Christians believe that their faith requires them to reject LGBTQ members or rights.

Visit a cultural or religious site in your community that reflects the lives of people with whom you don’t typically interact. Spend some time reflecting on what you learned about them and about yourself from the visit.

Create and perform a show that celebrates your community’s culture or beliefs.

Convene a reading group to look at the history of camp or drag. Starting places might include Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp” and Esther Newton’s 1972 book Mother Camp: Female Impersonators in America.
