Our own Steven Adair was a guest on the October 6, 2022 episode of Nashville Public Radio’s “This Is Nashville.” This episode is called “The growth of LGBT-affirming churches.”
About the episode:
Around Nashville, more and more churches are becoming LGBTQ-affirming. According to the website Gay Church, affirming congregations — also known as reconciling or welcoming — have increased by more than 50 percent in Nashville over the past decade. That reflects a national trend.
For some Nashville churches, the mission goes well beyond welcoming, centering LGBTQ people in worship and leadership. What does LGBTQ-affirming church look like in Nashville? We explore what it means for the religious culture of our city.
