Welcoming/Reconciling/Inclusive Organizations


Within many faith organizations and religious denominations, there are movements that support full inclusion of LGBTQ persons in the life of that organization or denomination. Most of these welcoming/reconciling/inclusive movements are not a part to the faith organization's or religious denomination's official structure, but they are working to change the policies of their organization or denomination. In addition, they provide support to LGBTQ persons within their churches. Click on the welcoming/reconciling/inclusive organization to access its website.
