The love of God cannot be blocked or obscured by religious teachings. For the second year in a row, members of LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent, a New York City-based organization, share their unique journeys to find personal relationships with God. The affirmation each experienced by realizing that God’s love is available unconditionally made it possible to find or return to a church or other faith community with deep convictions.

LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent of New York City conceived a project in late 2010 that could increase participation in and help promote harmony between seemingly disparate communities – the Black Church and Black Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgendered People – and save lives.

The organization used Robert Penn productions to create visual records of personal adult stories of self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-actualization in both church and sexual minority communities. They were screened at a Harlem première event on June 16, 2012. LGBTFLAD used Robert Penn again to help document youth bios. Dealing largely with family, school and coming out, these video biographies premiered at New York City's LGBT Center on September 15, 2012.

LGBT Faith Leaders of African Descent is a membership organization formed to challenge discrimination and exclusionary practices and politics that affect the well-being of LGBT people.
