Los Angeles Adventist Forum, March 24, 3:00 p.m. – Bryan D. Ness, Ph.D.

Dr Bryan D. Ness, professor of biology at Pacific Union College since 1989, will be addressing the Forum topic of “Nature, Nurture & Gender”, covering the biological and genetic aspects of what makes LGBT individuals who they are. He will be sharing the findings of the Andrews University study (published last March) that explored the experience of Adventist LGBT students  — relationships with family, local church & school, as well as emotional and social implications — and what this means for the church’s response.

Admission is free; forum open to all.
