A church in Fond Du Lac, Wis., will host a conversation about LGBTQ people in sports this Thursday, according to the FDL Reporter. The program is designed to further understanding about homophobia and other barriers to sports inclusion.

One of the speakers will be Lyndsey Seewald, head women’s basketball coach at Marian University in Fond Du Lac. She’s been publicly out for several years.

It’s fantastic to see a church engaging in these conversations, and in a place like Fond Du Lac. The church regularly hosts conversations about LGBTQ inclusion in various corners of society, including religion.

The Unitarian Universalist Church is considered a “liberal religion” and encourages a spiritual journey, welcoming people regardless of faith. Members include atheists, Christians, Muslims and Buddhists.

Fond Du Lac is a town of about 43,000 people in Southeast Wisconsin, and it’s heavily Roman Catholic.

If you’re in the area this Thursday evening, head over to the church for some snacks and good conversation.
