What impact do we expect WOW2003 to have?
WOW2003 will be the largest ever gathering of Christians�lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual�from diverse faith traditions advocating justice and equality for LGBT persons. For too long the primary Christian voices heard in our society have condemned LGBT persons and their families and friends. WOW2003 will mobilize an even larger and stronger grass roots Christian movement to combat homophobia and heterosexism. Widespread media coverage of WOW2003 can help transform social discourse on issues of sexual and gender orientation in the U.S. and Canada.
