THE VALUE OF STORIES
Hearing or reading a story like yours lets you know you are not alone. This is particularly important for LGBTIQ people in religious environments where the prevailing message is one of brokenness and condemnation. A single story from an LGBTIQ peer can provide hope that ‘It Gets Better’.
It is for these reasons that Brave prizes the stories of LGBTIQ people and wants to see these stories told Ethically and Responsibly by third parties.
WHO WE WORK WITH
The mission of Brave is far to important to be accomplished on our own, which is why we love to partner with a wide range of other Organizations and Individuals.
Those shown are just a few of those.
At Brave we love our continued Relationship with the Reformation Project.
Our Missions beautifully align to bring about change in the wider Church Community towards LGBTIQ Acceptance and Affirmation
Equal Voices is a national organisation working for the full inclusion of LGBTIQ people in Australian churches. Equal Voices is a proud partner of Brave Network.
“We are a movement of straight and LGBTIQ+ Christians who mourn the silencing and rejection of Christians who are LGBTIQ+ by our churches. We are committed to the cultivation of church cultures in which LGBTIQ+ people are welcomed and accepted on the same basis as anyone whose sexuality is ‘straight’.”
