Soulforce set to return to West Palm

The gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights group Soulforce is set to return to West Palm Beach Nov. 20-22.

Students will remember that Soulforce visited Palm Beach Atlantic University’s campus last October and attempted to enter a chapel service, only to have six of their members arrested by the West Palm Beach Police Department.

Soulforce’s November visit is scheduled in response to a convention being held that weekend at the West Palm Beach Marriott by the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH).

To counter to NARTH’s convention, entitled “Preventing & Treating Sexual Identity Confusion in the Lives of Children, Adolescents and Adults,” Soulforce has announced that it will be holding an anti-heterosexism conference, which according to the Soulforce Web site is designed “to explore and begin undoing the heterosexist attitudes that exist on personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural levels.”

The Beacon will be doing some more in-depth reporting on this issue, so stayed tuned to a future issue for more updates.
