Subscription: If you are known to FLGBTQC (you have been to one of our Gatherings), you can email the list manager, Joe Franko to be added to our email list. It averages 3-4 emails a day.
From our Frequently Asked Questions file:
"This [email list] is a way for FLGBTQC Friends and supporters to stay in touch with each other between gatherings. It is, to use John Calvi's analogy, a way for us to gather at the community store to exchange news, gossip, spiritual journeys, ask for prayers and guidance, and to do FLGBTQC business in an informal way."
"Think of this list as a form of Quaker dialogue. We do not debate here. Most of the things you post should clearly communicate who *you* are... share what has been true for you, with as much personal detail as you have the courage to muster."
These Marriage Minutes regarding same-sex marriages and other committment ceremonies have been collected by members of FLGBTQC. If you know of additional minutes you would like to see added, please email them to the Website Editors
Minutes Welcoming and Affirming Transgender People
This is a page on the FLGBTQC website collecting minutes welcoming and affirming transgender people.
Friends are encouraged to contact Meetings, and to send information about Meetings which have passed such minutes already.
It is our hope that this page will serve as a witness to the growing tradition of Friends Meetings doing the inner work to
create welcoming communities for seekers of all genders and publicly identifying that they have done so.
