LGBT+ Welsh Unitarians talk faith, love and sexuality for St Dwynwen’s Day

25 January 2022

Welsh LGBT+ Unitarians Rev. Rory Castle Jones and his husband Rhys talked to Welsh-language TV channel S4C’s ‘Dechrau Canu, Dechrau Canmol’ this Sunday for the programme’s ‘Love’ special, ahead of the St Dwynwen’s Day (the Welsh patron saint of love) on 25 January.

Rory and Rhys spoke to about their own journey of faith, getting married at Gellionnen Unitarian Chapel near Pontardawe (one of the first in Wales to offer same-sex marriage), and Rory becoming a Unitarian minister last year. Rhys spoke about having to leave another denomination because of homophobia and the couple explained to viewers how Unitarians have led the way in LGBT+ inclusion and same-sex marriage.
