A Resource for LGBTQI+ Affirming Communities Engaging Intersectional Work

This guide is designed for congregations which welcome and affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer people (LGBTQI+). The desire and theology that led you to declare yourself as a community which welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities is still working among you. This resource is meant to spark your imagination for ways to expand your ministries to include other marginalized groups and to express your affirmation for LGBTQI+ people through strong and effective advocacy. We suggest several areas in which you might take action; you alone know what specifically you and your congregation are called to do. We hope, however, that these ideas will generate ideas and conversations about that.
