Our Queer Hearts

Published: Feb. 10, 2023


Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Concerns

Twice a year, Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns (FLGBTQC) gather to worship, conduct business, pray, and play. In July, we are a visible and valued presence at the Friends General Conference Gathering. We are a community within a community there, worshiping together daily but dispersing throughout the Gathering at the rise of Meeting. Each February, we meet for a long weekend dedicated to FLGBTQC work and play. We retreat together to attend to old relationships and deepen new ones.

Mid-winter Gathering is open to everyone: you do not need to identify as Queer, or Quaker, to attend.

The theme for this year’s Midwinter Gathering is: “Our Queer Hearts: Relationships, Non/monogamy, and More.”

Please register, even if you're not sure you can make it! There is no cost to attend.

Thank you! We look forward to worshiping, playing, learning, and being in community with you.
