LGBTQ Welcoming Congregation

Pride Parade 2015

In the 1980s and 90s, when the word “welcoming” became a code word for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people, the Unitarian Universalist Association launched a Welcoming Congregation Program to help us learn how to undo homophobia – and later, transphobia (prejudice against transgender people) – in our hearts and minds, our congregations, and our communities. Today, most Unitarian Universalist congregations are recognized Welcoming Congregations. The spiritual practice of welcome is a very important one to our faith community. UUCA is a Welcoming Congregation.  UUCA is an active supporter of PRIDE PROM and participates in the GAY PRIDE Parade and related events.
