Straight for Equality for Faith Communities

"Everyone who comes here, no matter their sexual or gender identity, religious affiliation or knowledge, everyone is welcomed with open arms."
--Rabbi Toby Manewith, Bet Mishpachah Synagogue, Washington DC

Today, places of worship are often portrayed as anti-LGBT, as obstacles for LGBT individuals to overcome, and as unwelcoming, excluding places for gay people. As you know, this is not true! There are many faith groups out there who serve the LGBT community and practice love and inclusion of all people. In fact, they’ve become so successful that straight allies are becoming members of these places of worship! According to this article in USA Today, more and more straight people are joining inclusive faith groups that primarily serve the LGBT population. Want to know more?
