Event details
Details The last several years have seen renewed interest in the issue of diversity on college campuses, with issues of interreligious understanding and LGBTQ inclusion at the forefront. What divisions persist along lines of religious or sexual orientation, and how can we move beyond tolerance to understanding?

Chris Stedman, author of Faitheist and Harvard LGBTQ activist, will examine issues around respectfully engaging religious and sexual diversity. Stedman draws on his work organizing interfaith and ?secular communities, his academic study of religion, ?and his own experiences to argue for the necessity of ?bridging the growing chasm between atheists and the religious. Joining Stedman for the discussion will be Shiva Subbaraman, director of Georgetown's LGBTQ Center, and student participants. Chris Geidner, senior political reporter at BuzzFeed, will moderate.
