LGBT catholics fall BBQ & potluck: Sept 4 in Berkeley

I mentioned recently my struggle with working to integrate my gayness with my catholicity, and I keep up the struggle mainly because of finding hope-inspiring organizations in some parishes (like Holy Spirit/Newman Hall parish in Berkeley). The LGBTQ ministry at the parish has been inviting, welcoming, loving and including queer parishioners and seekers into the full life of the faith community for 20+ years. Sure, it is a 45 minute drive, but I find it very worth my time.

They launch their fall "season" with a potluck and barbecue next Thursday:
Sept 4 Fall BBQ-Potluck Get-together
Please join the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Catholics for our annual Fall BBQ-Potluck Get-together. Prepare a dish. Bring a friend. Meet new folks. Catch up with old friends. We'll provide the hot grill, burgers, hot-dogs, buns, condiments and beverages. The get-together is Thursday, Sept. 4, at 7:00 PM in lounge and patio. The group will resume meeting every first and third Thursday. Visit for information on the group. To join the group's announcement list contact Antonio Salas at or (510) 663-6302. All are welcome.
I plan on going and would be willing to carpool.

    We are proud to announce that we are continuing our "awareness screenings" of our multi-award winning documentary film Pursuit of Equality.

    We truly believe that we have created a film that will bring people together and provide a deeper understanding of civil liberties and current day discrimination.

    The intent of Pursuit of Equality ( is to present and expose the many sides of the same-sex marriage debate. This film follows the roller coaster ride as the first volley is waged against the constitutional question of marriage equality and continues as passions ignite this civil rights battle right to the heart of the nation.

    With the November 4th, 2008 election around the corner, educating people on this issue is vital.

    We invite you and your friends to join us at our upcoming Berkeley and Santa Rosa Screeing screening!
