Why have a group for LGBTQI Unitarians?
We acknowledge that many LGBTQI Unitarians are happy and openly supported in their congregations, but this is not always the case. For many LGBTQI people, joining a Unitarian congregation can bring a sense of isolation alongside the benefits. Our life patterns and experiences may not always fit mainstream perspectives, and this can be reflected in worship as well as the often-implicit congregational expectations about how life is lived.
In addition, it is only by working collectively that we can address any policy and resource issues which may affect LGBTQI Unitarians as a whole. It also helps us contribute to the broader Unitarian effort to promote social justice and equal rights for LGBTQI people.
Plus, it's fun.
