LGBTQ+ Pride Services

MANY TRADITIONS, #UNITEDINSPIRIT

This year, United in Spirit is encouraging LGBT-inclusive spiritual communities to host a specially-designated LGBT religious service during pride season.

We want the City, the World, and especially the LGBT community to know that the San Francisco Bay Area has many diverse churches, synagogues, mosques, and other religious communities which welcome and affirm LGBT people.

United in Spirit already hosts a list of inclusive congregations on our website and we want to promote these special pride services, so that those who have felt pushed away from their faith, may be welcomed back in.

You will be welcome at any and all of the special Pride Services hosted by the LGBTQ+ inclusive congregations below.

There’s still time if your congregation wishes to participate in this campaign, simply contact us.

Many traditions, #UnitedinSpirit!

Exploring Spirituality, Sexuality, and Gender
https://www.facebook.com/events/889282937909828/

Rather than providing a refuge from the challenges of life, many religious and spiritual groups have been unwelcoming or even abusive to members of the LGBTQ community. In this lighthearted conversation author Darren Main and The Rev. Jude Harmon will explore a more welcoming and compassionate spirituality that embraces the many diverse expressions of sexuality and gender from an Eastern and Western perspective.
All are welcome at this free event.
