Celebrate Pride with Middle Church

At Middle, all year long we celebrate God’s radiant queerness. We delight in the gorgeous diversity They created—the many sexual orientations that testify to a boundless love that cannot be contained. We praise the expansiveness of gender, and how our trans and gender inventive siblings glorify a God who is beyond gender Himself, who fluctuates and moves between gender performances as She chooses. And during Pride, we’re thrilled to make that celebration a public spectacle! And like any community with a preponderance of queer folks, we know how to throw a fabulous party. One year, we even won best float in NYC’s Pride parade! So come celebrate with us and experience a church that doesn’t just welcome LGBTQIA+ people—we embrace us with the same kind of fervor that God feels for her beloved children.
