Fidel says he’s “ready to participate” and “what joy to be part of an historic event in favor of making the claim to LGBT rights in the Catholic Church. We representatives, from the various sectors of the LGBTI community [worldwide], will arrive and make our voices heard in the Synod of Bishops. No more invisible, no more persecution!”

In 2014, in Rome, “an international network of 13 organizations of/with LGBT Catholics met for the first time during the Family Synod.” Now, these organizations this week in Rome, from October 1-4, are initiating “a global network of LGBTQI Catholics, their parents and families” and are billing it “the First Assembly of the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics, the foundational meeting of the new network.” [See source for this paragraph.]
