LGBT Welcoming Congregation

Southwest Unitarian Universalist Church is a Welcoming Congregation, as described by the national Unitarian Universalist Association. This means that our members include lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons at all levels of congregational life – worship, program, and social events.  It also means that an understanding of the experiences and concerns of LGBT people is part of the fabric of our church life, and so is the appreciation for their contributions to our society and culture.

 

The UUA’s “Standing on the Side of Love” Campaign

Standing on the Side of Love is a community of people compelled to speak out against oppression, united in the common belief that love is the ultimate guiding force of our world. This is a time of great hope and possibility, yet our communities are threatened by the increased prevalence of acts motivated by fear and hate. No one should be dehumanized through acts of exclusion, oppression, or violence because of their identities. In public debates on immigrant justice, LGBTQ equality, and more, religious people stand on the side of love and call for respect, inclusion, and compassion.

Standing on the Side of Love is an interfaith public advocacy campaign that seeks to harness love’s power to stop oppression. It is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association and all are welcome to join.
