The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Stamford is proud to be an LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation. This means that our congregation has gone through the UUA’s Welcoming Congregation program and has taken intentional steps to be inclusive of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We echo the words of the Unitarian Universalist Association: “Being welcoming means striving for radical inclusion, and creating spaces that honor every part of our identities, backgrounds, and experiences.” LGBTQ+ people are an integral part of our congregation, and we celebrate the diversity among us! We have officially been a welcoming congregation since 2008.
UUC Stamford does not stop at welcome, though. We believe (now more than ever!) that we must do our part to actively work for LGBTQ+ protections and justice. We make strong efforts to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and to support Queer organizations in Fairfield County. We host worship services dedicated to raising awareness about LGBTQ+ issues and uplifting our own LGBTQ+ members. We have featured speakers and educators from the Triangle Community Center and partnered with Stamford Pride on events such as a National Coming Out Day and Pride Sunday. We provide financial support to both of these organizations throughout the year. We also have a yearly presence at the Triangle Community Center’s Pride in the Park.
Our Social Justice Team meets on the third Sunday of every month, after worship. To find out more about our ongoing work for LGBTQ+ justice and to get connected, contact Rev. Terri.
