The Voyage: An LGBTQIA+ Meetup
Pastor Bailey Brawner
My name is Rev. Bailey Brawner and I’m the senior pastor at MHUMC in San Diego. I am also an LGBTQIA+ activist and educator, and a digital creator with a community of over 50,000 on platforms like TikTok and other social media platforms. I’m working with my church to run a networking group called The Voyage, which provides community and advocacy to over 40 queer people of faith around California and throughout the United States and Canada.We’re working to branch further to provide learning opportunities and networking moving forward to better serve the queer community in San Diego and beyond, including a digital retreat happening at the end of March. Our current need is funding the digital retreat, and namely providing scholarships for those who need this community but can’t afford the registration fee. We are planning to have at least 100 attendees this year, and I’d love to talk to you further about how you may be willing to provide a scholarship or two (or ten) to The Voyage, at $30 each, to give a once in a lifetime opportunity to an LGBTQIA+ young adult.
