Unitarian Universalism and LGBT Issues: History & Facts

Unitarian Universalism is widely known for its commitment to welcome and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals and families.

We are one of the few religions that ordains openly LGBT people, and the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) also provides assistance in their settlement. Our LGBT clergy (who are permitted to partner or marry) participate fully in our faith community as pastors in some of our largest congregations.

Bayard Rustin


2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Bayard Rustin’s birth—a visionary strategist and activist who has been called “the unknown hero” of the civil rights movement.


A disciple of Gandhi, a mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., and the architect of the 1963 March on Washington, Rustin dared to live as an openly gay man during the fiercely homophobic 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
