Integrity's Impact

Integrity is the leading public voice for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in the Episcopal Church. Founded in 1974 by Dr. Louie Crew, Integrity has grown to become an organization with members across the country—LGBT and straight, rural and urban, in congregations large and small.  Integrity fulfills a key uniting role, seeking to bring together individuals and congregations who share the vision of a church in which all the baptized are fully included in the Body of Christ.

Over the years, its ministry has expanded beyond the Episcopal Church.  It has also become a respected voice for equal civil rights.  Often working in coalitions with both secular and other faith-based groups, Integrity has been instrumental in advancing the claim LGBT persons are making for equal protection and opportunity in our society. The video below gives you some background on the impact Integrity has had in almost 40 years of ministry.  You can also click here to read about the state of LGBT inclusion in The Episcopal Church.
