SA Unitarians celebrated LGBTQIA+ diversity at Feast service and Transgender Remembrance Day event
The Unitarian Church of South Australia celebrated sexual and gender diversity during Adelaide’s Feast Festival, November 9-24, 2019, by holding a special Feast Sunday service and a solemn ceremony to mark the International Transgender Day of Remembrance. The Norwood-based congregation, which has more than 100 members with beliefs ranging from Christianity and Buddhism to atheism, welcomes people from the LBGQTIA+ community who are in search of a spiritual home or just a safe place to have a cuppa.
The Unitarian Feast Sunday service ran from 10.30am to noon on Sunday, November 17, with a special appearance by the Adelaide Gay & Lesbian Qwire, a vibrant and proud choir with a recognisable identity in both GLBTI and broader communities. The service explored the diversity of the LBGQTIA+ community by celebrating the meaning of each of these component letters.
