We are a “Welcoming Congregation” to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people.
Through our newsletter and occasional worship services on gay issues, our members are kept informed about homophobia. We have an active Diversity Team to encourage the congregation to be open and welcoming to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons, and promote the cause of LGBTI equality in the wider community.
In 2000-2001, a Welcoming Congregation task force held a series of workshops on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues in the congregation, resulting in a congregational vote in May, 2001, affirming First Unitarian Church of Victoria as a “Welcoming Congregation.”
