Dr. Wilhelmina Perry
Founder Emeritus, LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent

Dr. Wilhelmina Perry
Founder Emeritus, LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent

LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent is an organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and same gender loving people of African Descent and their allies formed to serve as ambassadors and educators to oppose discrimination, exclusion or intimidation of LGBT persons in our society and particularly in our church communities.

"We promote the spiritual values of love and inclusiveness. Our activities include cultural activities by African American artists who support LGBT rights, public education, social media, op-eds, an annual forum and workshops. Attendance at our events continues to grow, and so does our visibility. We have received encouragement from leading religious institutions, theologians and clergy. By addressing African American homophobia directly, we are engaging in bold and innovative work."

Dr. Perry is also the co-founder of the Circle of Life Celebration and Pride Memorial, established to honor members of the LGBTQ community who have passed, and to provide a space for same-gender-loving and transgender people who have not been mourned or recognized for their authenticity. She was also a co-founder and member of the Black and Latino LGBT Coalition.
