ACL Sponsors PRIDE

When it comes to being an ally, we here at the Atheist Community of Lubbock know that supporting the LGBTQ+ community is essential. The intersection between the LGBTQ community, and the Atheist community is huge. Many of our community members have left religion because of the harm it has caused in their lives, and a significant portion of that harm, is directed toward members who are part of the LGBTQ community.

When someone is experiencing discrimination, hate, or isolation in their religious community, it's the responsibility of Atheists and similar secular communities to help pick up the pieces and provide support.

How many times have we heard that people delayed leaving their abusive congregations or families because they were afraid to leave the support their community provided? Atheists have an obligation be be out, and vocal so that those who need to leave can do so knowing there is a supportive community waiting for them.

This is why the Atheist Community of Lubbock is proud to sponsor Lubbock PRIDE this year. We hope in doing so we can make more people aware that there is a supportive and loving community free from religious dogma available in Lubbock. We support the LGBTQ community because we are part of the LGBTQ community!
