LGBTQIA+ Justice

Each person is made in God’s image. Every one. Each straight, gay, lesbian bi, trans, queer, intersex person is divine. We've known love is love is love for as long as we've been doing ministry on 7th Street and Second Avenue. We celebrate Love.Period. all year. We opened our doors to the HIV/AIDS community in the late 1980s offering hot meals and funerals. We organized to change ordination laws in the Reformed Church of America. We took our faith to streets in support of marriage equality in New York State, and the first Sunday after marriage equality was legal in New York State, we held a triple gay wedding during worship. We worked for the federal marriage equality law and were at Stonewall, speaking, cheering, and singing when it was passed.

Throughout the year, join our LGBTQIA+ group, Middle Out Loud. Email Bertram Johnson, bjohnson@middlchurch.org to receive updates about events.

Though we celebrate our LGBTQIA+ family all year, June is Pride Month! See our full listing of Pride-related events on our website.
