History

The Council on Homosexuality and Religion was founded in 1976 as an agency for promoting the welfare of homosexual persons, particularly as regards their religious and spiritual life, and the understanding of homosexuality among the religious and social service institutions with which homosexual persons were in contact. The Council was registered as a non-profit corporation in the Province of Manitoba in 1977 and as a charitable institution with Revenue Canada in 1978. In addition to counselling, the Council was active in compilation, production and distribution of printed and audio-visual materials on homosexuality. On February 6, 1978 the Council began sponsoring a weekly half-hour radio program called Gay Christian Witness (Gay Christian Forum) which was aired on the University of Manitoba radio station CJUM FM. Providing relevant speaker sessions, workshops and seminars was also a mainstay of the organization.
