We are a “Welcoming Congregation” — which means that our church has voted to actively welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and has undertaken a number of commitments to support this effort. If you are lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender, or if you think you might be, you are welcome here. Come, be as you are.
Our History of Support
Unitarian Universalism is strongly supportive of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender (BGLT) people and their families, and has officially welcomed this community since 1970. We believe that our first principle, respecting “the inherent worth and dignity of every person,” applies equally to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
Unitarian Universalism is one of the few religions that ordain openly Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender people. We encourage our BGLT clergy to participate as fully in our faith as our heterosexual clergy.
In addition to welcoming BGLT people into our religious community, we also work to protect the civil and legal rights of BGLT people and families across the country. Unitarian Universalists have been at the forefront of the same-sex marriage debates, advocating for the right for each person to marry the partner of his or her choice.
