KRAKOW, Poland, July 19, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — LGBT activists in Poland will advocate their issues in a shadow outreach at this year’s World Youth Day.

Heads of the Warsaw-based “Faith And Rainbow LGBT” group hope to reach thousands of gay, lesbian and transgender individuals at the Catholic Church’s triennial international event in Krakow, and to do so they have set up an “LGBT Pilgrims Haven.”

“We want to create a space in which they will feel safe and where they will find answers to issues facing them,” said Misza Czerniak, one of the organizers.

The “LGBT Pilgrims Haven” will take place in a cafe in Krakow’s Kazimierz Jewish quarter.

Among the activists taking part in the Polish LGBT event alongside World Youth Day is Rev. Jim Mulcahy, a U.S.-born Jesuit, according to the group’s information, who “is an experienced pastor and spiritual father of many LGBT believers.” He is currently a pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church, lives in Ukraine, and “is a special ecumenical guest of our Haven.”

Also presenting at the LGBT event will be Brendan Fay, chairman of the Lavender and Green Alliance, the second homosexual activist group to march in the New York City Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in March this year after OUT@NBCUniversal was given the go-ahead to march in the 2015 parade.

The “Faith And Rainbow LGBT” group’s effort is the first reported outside event in conflict with the Church’s teaching scheduled during this year’s World Youth Day in Poland, a largely Catholic country.
