Quakers, Sexuality and Gender

Interested in a faith that welcomes LGBTQIA+ people?

Equality is a core value of the Quaker way. Women have been an integral part of Quakerism since its earliest days, over 350 years ago. In 1963, the Quaker publication of “Towards a Quaker View of Sex” was the first report by a religious body that espoused a positive understanding of homosexuality.  In 2009 Quakers actively campaigned for same sex marriage.

Why not help us make the world a better place for all?  Join us to find out what it is about Quakers that makes us such a comfortable spiritual home for LGBTQIA+ people?

(Note: LGBTQIA =  Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual.)

Quakers.  Simple.  Radical. Contemporary.

Our evening starts at 6.30, for light refreshments and chat.

There will be 6-minute presentations from three speakers, not giving an ‘official Quaker view’ since there is none, but Quakers each speaking from their own experience. There will also be small discussion groups; a general discussion time and an opportunity to experience a Quaker meeting for worship.  The formal session ends at 9, but you can stay and chat until 9.30.

    So the Bishops have decided that it's fine to bless a battle ship or a shop, but not a loving couple who are the same gender. I'm so pleased to be a Quaker.
