Advocate reports that Rev. Cedric A. Harmon's organization, “Many Voices", partnered with Morgan State University to produce a new video, My God Too: Black LGBTQ Students Speak OUT. The video features interviews of LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ ally students, who share their personal stories about how they have been impacted by traditional black church teachings regarding gender and sexuality. Their stories of isolation, fear, and rejection from the church are juxtaposed with stories about how they are accepted and welcome at Morgan State, and they bring forward a hopeful vision of what is possible if the black community chooses to engage in social justice awareness at the intersection of sexuality, gender, and spirituality.
