Welcome to the GNRC Website!
The GNRC supports the “Equal Future” campaign
To help make sure that the lives and concerns of Catholic LGBTQI and ally young people are addressed at the Vatican’s Synod on Youth in October 2018, the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics is co-sponsoring a global effort to make it easy for those under 30 years old to tell their stories to the bishops who will be their delegates.
The project is called “Equal Future” and it provides an online tool for youth to communicate directly with the bishops who will be representing them in Rome next month. Young people can write their personal stories, upload them along with information about their geographic location to the Equal Future website, and the stories will be emailed to their bishop delegate(s).
All GNRC members and associate members are encouraged to share this information with their organizations and networks so that the bishops get a wide and varied sampling of stories as they begin to deliberate future church directions regarding young people.
Time is critical! The synod begins on 3 October and runs until 28 October. So please share this information quickly and widely.

You can also promote the program in the news media by sending out the attached press release to your journalist contacts. Feel free to add your name, organization name and logo, and a quotation from someone in your organization to the press release to make it more local to your community.
Thanks for your help.
