Love.Period: An Interfaith Pride Celebration

Held Sunday, 2:00 pm, July 12, 2015 at the Santa Barbara Sunken Gardens, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA

As part of Santa Barbara’s Pacific Pride Festival, the first ever Interfaith Pride Celebration took place on Sunday, July 12, 2015 at 2:00 pm in the Santa Barbara Court House Sunken Gardens. The celebration featured members of faith groups who stand up for the dignity of all people, and particularly for the LGBTQ community.

Speakers from various faiths described how their traditions promote love and justice for all. There was an interfaith choir and afterward, we enjoyed light refreshments and an opportunity for people to mingle with representatives from 19 open and welcoming congregations in our community. The speakers included Rev. Frank Schaefer & more!

The 2015 Interfaith Pride Celebration proved to be healing, inspiring, and uplifting.
