About the Center for LBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion
The Latinx Roundtable is a program of the Center for LBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion (CLGS). CLGS was established at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California and opened its doors in the fall of 2000.
The Center serves three distinct but overlapping constituencies: the world of academic religious scholarship; faith communities; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and organizations. For each of these constituent groups, CLGS is committed to providing programming and support for research, resources, education for leadership, and community-building/advocacy. All programming is devoted to carrying out the Center’s fundamental mission:
To advance the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and to transform faith communities and the wider society by taking a leading role in shaping a new public discourse on religion and sexuality through education, research, community building and advocacy
