Episcopal Congregations and Integrity

Episcopal congregations across the country are becoming known as welcoming places for LGBT persons, their families and friends.  Some are just starting their journey, and others have been welcoming for a long time.

Integrity works to support and resource Episcopal parishes in many ways.  Those that want to work with us have two main types of ongoing affiliation:

Proud Parish Partners are congregations that are "organizational members" of Integrity, and they donate a small annual amount to support the work of Integrity USA; each parish has a representative on Integrity's Stakeholders' Council.  Non-parish organizations can become partners, too!  Read more or view our map and list of Proud Partners.

Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregations

BOL Episcopal CongregationsBelieve Out Loud is a transdenominational effort to identify LGBT-supportive Christians and churches and to encourage them to be vocal and visible in their support of LGBT persons in their communities.  Within The Episcopal Church, BOL is the official designation for a welcoming congregation that is registered with Integrity USA and has a public welcoming statement that states their inclusion of people regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.  Read more or view our map of welcoming congregations.
