Secular activism and LGBTQ activism clearly belong together. In this presentation, we’ll explore reasons why the work in the LGBT movement is far from over and why the secular movement is best positioned to be the true champions of equality for queer and trans individuals
Callie Wright is an activist, speaker, host of The Gaytheist Manifesto podcast, which explores the intersection of issues facing both the atheist movement and the LGBTQ movement, and founder of The LGBT Secular Alliance. Callie came out as a transgender woman in the summer of 2013, and was shocked to see proselytizing, sometimes even aggressive proselytizing, at events for the queer and trans community. Her mission is to be a voice for the LGBTQ community in the atheist movement, and a voice for atheism/secularism in the LGBTQ community, and firmly believes that the atheist and secular movement, unfettered from the dogma of religion, can and should be leading the charge in the fight for equality for everyone.
