LGBTQ+ Welcoming Congregation

We seek to create a community that is especially inclusive of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, intersex and queer persons.

As a UU Welcoming Congregation, we’ve participated in training developed by the Unitarian Universalist Association. The goal? To reduce prejudice by increasing understanding and acceptance among people of different sexual orientations.

Topics include:

  • How Homophobia Hurts Heterosexuals
  • Connections to Other Forms of Oppression
  • Gender Socialization
  • Homophobia and Religious Perspectives on Sexual Orientation
  • Transgender 101
  • Bisexuality
  • Sexual Orientation and Racism
In 1995, South Valley became the first official Welcoming Congregation in the Intermountain West.
