What is a Welcoming Congregation?

The Welcoming Congregation Program is a voluntary program developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1989 for congregations seeking to be inclusive toward gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) people. It is in keeping with Unitarian Universalism's first principle, "We covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of all persons," we believe that it is essential to welcome, affirm, and support GLBT people.
