Welcoming Organizations

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