They were featured on NewsNight, where BBC reporters went to Magaluf in Spain to report on what the Street Angels do over the night hours and into the morning throughout the holiday period.
The Street Angels meet with many of the LGBT community. Some Biblical views are very 'anti-gay' and we wanted to provide some background and evidence to highlight that the Bible can be interpreted as showing love towards all people including the LGBT community. We also wanted to discuss 'Love the sinner and Hate the sin' argument.
So we set up our stall with Christian LGBT literature (kindly donated by the Unicorn Bookshop in Lincoln - thanks Melanie!!.
We provided Biblical responses to the 6 Clobber verses typically 'thrown' at the LGBT community. WE offered signposts to Stonewall, Gires, Mermaids and the LGBT Foundation if these groups needed more information on LGBT issues.
CNI kindly have added our presentation to their website (this includes the PowerPoint presentation in pps format). If you want to download the full PowerPoint presentation including all the videos please contact us direct on firstname.lastname@example.org. The file is 330MB in size. You could use this version which is in PDF.
We are now asking them to ensure that each Street Angel initiative has the Stop Hate cards or at least the information to provide to the LGBT community they meet, so we can jointly tackle homophobia, transphobia and biphobia.
