A Church that Celebrates LGBTQ "Coming Out"!

At the UUCiA...
I'm so happy to be part of a congregation that celebrates LGBTQ "coming out"!

Please join us  at the UU Congregation in Andover on Sunday, October 12 at 10:30 a.m. for "A Shout Out for Coming Out!" with guest Debra Fowler. Saturday, October 11, is National LGBTQ Coming Out Day, and this year we celebrate the 26th anniversary of this event. As summarized by The Human Rights Campaign, "Coming out STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other. Every person who speaks up changes more hearts and minds, and creates new advocates for equality."

Come celebrate with readings, stories and songs and remember how far we’ve come and be reminded of how much remains to be done. Deb Fowler is a filmmaker and co-creator of “Through Gay Eyes”. She has been teaching English Language Learners at Lowell High School since 2005. Please join us!  Directions here.
