LGBT Requiem Mass

Holcombe Waller

The LGBT Requiem Mass will leverage the unique trans-disciplinary, trans-institutional convention of the modern Mass to honor LGBT people persecuted, or abandoned to persecution, in the name of religion. Intended to explore music’s role in shaping cultural, political and religious ideology, the project will spark dialogue among artists, religious congregations, arts presenters and communities seeking common ground in the global movement for LGBT safety and equality.
