It's here! Affirming PIE video launch
Public+ Intentional+Explicit= PIE
Join us March 14: 
About that video we keep promising: It's here!!
We at Affirming Connections and Affirm United/ S'affirmer Ensemble are delighted to launch our sweet new video on Affirming PIE!

Join our pie-loving hosts Stéphane and Pam as they introduce us to PIE, and as five Affirming ministries tell their stories about their Public, Intentional, and Explicit work and welcome for the LGBTQ2SIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Two Spirit, Intersex, Asexual, +) community.

Reflect on your own recipes and possibilities for further LGBTQ2SIA+ inclusion in your community!

This 15 minute video is completely free to download and to stream through Vimeo:

This video can be used any time, but we're launching it in time for PIE Day 2019, March 14. It's not too late to organize some pie, PIE, and pi in your community. Full info on cross Canada events, free planning resources, and more:

Huge thanks to all of these good people and groups: 

Video concept, script, and design: Pam Rocker and Julie Graham

A huge slice of thank you’s to our hosts:
- Stéphane Youdom, @steph_abuleux
- Pam Rocker,

This video was partially made possible by the generous individual donors of the Gifts with Vision program of the United Church of Canada. Your donations and alternative Christmas gifts made our PIE storytelling dream a reality.

Affirming Connections and its Director, Pam Rocker, produced this video to continue their mandate to strengthen and amplify the affirming actions of inclusive faith communities in the Calgary area, and beyond, and to be in the public square for issues of faith and justice. It is currently funded by St. Andrew's Regional Ministries and the Calgary Presbytery of United Churches.

This video also features five of the over 200  ministries across Canada who have completed Affirm United/ S'affirmer Ensemble's Affirming ministries program. Almost 150 more are in the process right now. Thank you to the Affirming ministries who told your PIE stories and showed us how to keep the Affirming welcome fresh and delicious:

Hillhurst United Church, Calgary AB
Kamloops United Church, Kamloops, BC
McKillop United Church, Lethbridge, AB
Riverside United Church, London ON
Trinity-Clifton United Church, Charlottetown PEI
