For LGBTQ religious people, Valentine’s Day can be a difficult holiday. Many who come from faith traditions that are not yet LGBTQ inclusive find that friends, family, and community membership are not able to celebrate the love they have found. For too many, this prompts a sense of having to choose between two equally important identities, and makes remaining in faith traditions difficult.
Thankfully, this Valentine’s Day, we are spreading a different message. Equally Blessed is motivated by a vision of a church where homophobia has no place, where all people–and all of the love they find–are celebrated.
Feel free to share these with loved ones.
