Quaker Gender & Sexual Diversity Community

Living & Loving Adventurously

An overview of the organisation/group:

Who we are and what we do We are a fellowship of LGBTI+ people within the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Britain. We welcome people seeking an inclusive spiritual home within Quakers. We hope to provide a welcoming space for individuals who share the joys and challenges arising from diverse sexual orientation and diverse gender identity. We also act as a resource for Quaker Meetings relating to diversity and equality. This is an LGBT+ community, promoting equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, intersex and queer people, among faith groups and in society, in the UK and elsewhere. We hope to inspire the Quaker community in Britain to reach out to people who are seeking a spiritual home but who feel marginalised by faith communities, because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We are a national network and a Quaker Recognised Body, which is run according to the Quaker way. We welcome non-Quakers who are in sympathy with the Quaker testimonies to equality, integrity, peace and simplicity. We appreciate the ongoing journey a lot of us are on to self-acceptance, and want to mirror that acceptance in how we operate as a group. We believe we have a lot to learn from each other in our daily lives and know that our Quaker faith is the ground in which we live and grow as individuals and as a community. We arrange occasional gatherings around the country providing an opportunity for sharing experience, learning, worship and enrichment. We keep in touch with an occasional newsletter.
