LGBTQ+ 101

In order to better understand how we can all be of service to our LGBTQ+ friends and neighbors, we partnered with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Sussex County to host a community forum featuring local LGBTQ+ thought leaders.  It was an enlightening, unifying event at which we all gained valuable insights into the challenges faced by LGBTQ+ residents of our area.
