Pride in the Pews is reimagining what inclusion looks like in Black churches. Launched in 2020 by Pastor Don Abram, Pride in the Pews collects and shares stories of LGBTQ+ people in the Black Church and includes a group of eight historically Black religious denominations and other Christian groups that primarily minister to African Americans. Like any in the LGBTQ community Pastor Abram found that the church that had loved, raised and reared him turned its back on him when he came out. This experience pushed him to found Pride in the Pews.

The organizatio has epanded byond the city of Chicago to communities nationwide.
Our guest Calvin Taylor Director of Partnerships and Program of Pride in the Pews, leads workshops in activities about statistics of LGBTQ+ members in Black churches.
The organization will be recognized at this year’s Esteem Awards in Chicago on July 1, 2023.
