CLGS was created to advance the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (LGBT) and to transform faith communities and wider society by taking a leading role in shaping a new public discourse on religion and sexuality through research, education for leadership, resourcing, community building and advocacy.
Pacific School of Religion (PSR): PSR is a multi-denominational graduate seminary founded in 1866. PSR gives employees opportunities to learn, contribute to strong teams and demonstrate leadership. We believe that diverse viewpoints, mutual respect, trust and openness help to create a great working climate. Our mission statement commits PSR to being an open and affirming community that honors diversity and presses toward racial, gender, sexual orientation and economic justice.

The LGBTQ Religious Archives Network (www.lgbtqreligiousarchives.org) is an innovative venture in preserving history and encouraging scholarly study of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ) religious movements around the world. LGBTQ-RAN has a two-fold basic purpose. First it assists LGBTQ religious leaders and groups in determining how best to preserve their records and papers in appropriate repositories. Secondly, LGBTQ-RAN provides an electronic information clearinghouse for these archival collections and other historical data—such as biographical profiles, oral histories and digital exhibitions—about LGBTQ religious history for the use of historians, researchers and other interested persons.
To apply for the internship, please send cover letter and resume detailing relevant education and experience by April 29, 2019 to: LGBTQ-RAN Coordinator Mark Bowman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
