PRIDE Opportunities for Highland in June

by Highland Baptist Church on May 23, 2024

We are looking forward to PRIDE month in our Kentuckiana area and in our congregation. There are lots of opportunities coming up for Highland to love our neighbors, be strong allies with and alongside the LGBTQ+ community, and share with others about who we are as a thinking, feeling, and healing community of faith.

    Whether you've never seen a drag show, are curious, are skeptical, or are a long-time fan, we hope you'll join us for Andrew Newton Sahftlein’s upcoming show! It will be a great space to explore, learn, and grow together as we discover what it looks like to be a good neighbor in our world! A first preview on May 31 is a free event supported by Fund for the Arts for our community. Additional shows are on June 1-2 and 7-8. Bob Cunningham and Mary Alice Birdwhistell will be hosting a special talk-back with Andrew after the show on June 8. Buy your tickets here.
