what we're about
As a ministry of Forefront Brooklyn, we are committed to creating Christian community for anyone who identifies as queer or questioning. Wherever you are on the journey of faith, gender & sexuality, we welcome you to join us. As an LGBTQIA-affirming space, we're here to provide a safe, spiritual home for people to ask questions and connect with others.
We host monthly events in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as occasional educational events for the public. To see what we've been up to, check out our Eventbrite profile and our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages. To learn more about how Forefront BK transitioned to become open-and-affirming, check out a profile of our church in The New York Times.

We're excited to have a conversation with Isaac Archuleta, Director of the Gay Christian Network, who will come and lead us in a conversation entitled, Shame Undone: Healthy Relationships and Self-trust. Isaac will address the stigma surrounding shame and expose the lie that shame has to be a part of our daily lives.
Queer Communion is meeting on the 17th at 2pm at the lovely Hannah Soldner's apartment in Crown Heights. In addition to our usual social chit-chat, we'll dedicate some time to have conversation / processing around the Nashville Statement. We'll also chat about how white supremacy and colonialism has a huge role in Christianity's relationship to gender/sexuality.
Join Queer Communion and friends for an evening rooftop social near Union Square! Take in the views surrounded by a community of LGBTQIA Christian folks -- if you identify as LGBTQIA+ and Christian, we want you here. We will bring alcohol and light snacks; you bring the conversation!
Join Queer Communion and Forefront Church for a public film screening and group discussion on gender identity. Early this year, National Geographic produced a documentary called Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric. In it, Couric explores how gender identity is defined and what labels people use in different societies in today's world. Through discussion and conversation, let's unpack the merits and flaws of the film to see how gender and faith intersect. Discussion will be facilitated by Liz Edman, author of Queer Virtue and an Episcopal Priest, and Hannah Soldner, blogger at Believe out Loud.
