What does it mean to be a “Welcoming Congregation”?

By UUCF on Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Congregations who publicly and successfully welcome bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgender people. The work of UUCF’s Welcoming Congregation Committee is to encourage, facilitate, and monitor our efforts toward this goal through educational, political, and social activities.

Standing on the Side of Love

UUCF and Interweave hosted an evening of discourse and song on Saturday, October 7, 2009. An afterglow reception will occured afterwards. The topic of discussion for the evening was the advances we have made in combating homophobia, that homophobia still exists and that we must be diligent and vocal in our work, and the benefits we get from doing so. Our guest speaker for the evening was Rev. Keith Kron, Director, Office of Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian and Transgendered Concerns, Unitarian Universalist Association. The musical guests for the evening’s performance were “Sing Out! Detroit”, a newly-formed 45-member LGBT chorus in the Detroit Metro area, pianist Todd Ballou, and talented friends of Universalist Unitarian Church of Farmington.
