A few faces of FLGBTQC

Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Concerns is a North American Quaker faith community that affirms that of God in all people. Gathering twice yearly for worship and play, we draw sustenance from each other and from the Spirit for our work and life in the world. We are learning that radical inclusion and radical love bring further light to Quaker testimony and life. [More]

Gatherings

The next gathering where FLGBTQC will have a presence will be the 2019 FLGBTQC Midwinter Gathering. All are welcome to attend. More info soon.

Outreach and Resources

We have an active email list, for all who have come to our Gatherings. Contact the Email List Manager for more information.

We are relaunching an electronic newsletter with the intention of creating Fall and Spring editions. The newsletter editor is collecting material now, hoping to publish by October 15th 2018.

We have produced a pamphlet about FLGBTQC and our work in the world.

We are collecting Marriage Minutes written by Quaker Meetings affirming same-sex Quaker marriages and other commitment ceremonies. If your Meeting has minuted support for same-sex Quaker marriages but you are not included on this list, please contact the Web Site Manager. These minutes have been included in amicus briefs for several court cases. We try to keep them as up-to-date as possible.

We are collecting Minutes that specifically welcome and affirm transgender people on a new page on our web site. We ask that minutes included on this page be primarily concerned with transgender inclusion. We are also collecting minutes that more generally affirm lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people and will be including a new page on our site for those affirmations. Please contact the Clerks for more information.

Donations

FLGBTQC appreciates donations to support our community. We accept donations by mail.

This document is a template you could adapt and use to ask your Meeting to consider supporting FLGBTQC. Many Meetings so approached are touched to be able to support an organization important to the spiritual journey of a member. [PDF, DOC]
