An LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation

UUCGN is open to people of all races, sexual orientations, and cultural and religious backgrounds, each member respecting the rights of others.

The Process of Becoming an Official Welcoming Congregation

On March 21, 2001, UUCGN was officially designated as a Welcoming Congregation by a vote of its membership. In doing so, it declares itself publicly as welcoming to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons at every level of congregational life – in worship, in programs, and in special occasions.

Standing on the side of Love

Unitarian Universalists affirm unconditional, universal love as a foundation and grounding for our actions in the world

We strive to be of service to our communities and advocate for change on local, state, national, and international levels.

Through our Standing on the Side of Love campaign, we amplify the voices of the oppressed through online media; we show up in partnership at justice events across the country; we lobby national leaders on immigration reform, racial justice, equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people, religious freedom, and more; and above all we work to make love real in the world.”


Transgender Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are still struggling to find community in UU congregations. Bisexual UUs suffer from invisibility while asexual, intersex, and polyamorous communities are wrestling with a progressive faith that does not privilege their truth. These and the many more social ills that plague our LGBTQ+ and TGQNB communities are calling us into a deeper commitment to insure that our Unitarian Universalist congregations are living into the welcome that we boldly proclaim.
