A preview version of Voices of Witness: Africa was premiered at the Lambeth Conference last night as one of the Fringe Events available to bishops, spouses, and other conference organizers, staff, and participants. With more than 75 people in attendance, conference insiders report that it was one of the most highly attended Fringe Events at the conference to date.

In addition to Voices of Witness: Africa, the original project, Voices of Witness: 2006, was also screened. Following the screenings, a panel including the filmmakers and individuals featured in the film answered questions from the audience. The panel was moderated by Louise Brooks of IntegrityUSA.

The Voices of Witness series was begun in an effort to answer, in part, repeated calls from the Anglican Communion to engage in a Listening Process so that the Communion may understand the stories of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender persons more fully.
