Tennessee illustrates how movements for equality can advance in the face of organized religious and political opposition—and how that opposition can spur alliances among faith groups and LGBT advocates.

Keeping the Faith
Faith Organizing or Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, andTransgender Moral and Civil Rights in a Southern State
Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite and Marta Cook January 2011
The Center or American Progress, through the Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative, has been engagedor two years in individually tailored research to examine religious and advocacy eorts that contribute toor impede moral and civil equality or lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans. This report is theourth in a series and examines aith and LGBT advocacy eorts in Tennessee. The goal o all our reports is tohelp rerame the debate beyond “religion vs. gay rights” and put orth the importance o ongoing, substan-tive collaborations between aith communities and LGBT advocates.In previous reports, we examined such collaborations in Michigan and Arkansas on marriage equality andsame-sex adoption issues. We learned important lessons about what works when it comes to aith organizing,outreach, and communications. While some similarities exist among the states we’ve studied, dierences alsoabound. This report, which examines aith and LGBT advocacy eorts in Tennessee, contains lessons that holdtrue or other states, even as it reveals lessons that are less portable. Both types o lessons are important, aswe continue eorts in other states, and at the national level, to bring ull equality to all Americans.We would like to thank the Arcus Foundation or its generous support o this report and our ProgressiveFaith and Family Equality project.
