The Shower of Stoles Project is an extraordinary collection of over one thousand liturgical stoles and other sacred items representing the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people of faith. These religious leaders have served in over thirty denominations and faith traditions, and come from six countries on three continents.
This collection celebrates the gifts of LGBT persons who serve God in countless ways, while also lifting up those who have been excluded from service because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The Project bears witness to the huge loss of leadership that the Church has brought upon itself because of its own unjust policies.
The collection tours constantly around the country, being exhibited in local congregations, universities and seminaries, and regional and national denominational gatherings.
