I am a parent of a trans child. I am relatively new to the United Church, but when my child came out, our church was the place she came out. The church was so amazing and so accepting. Sadly to say, my parents and family were not. Myself, wife and our child have basically been disowned by my parents. Without the support and help of the United Church I would be very lost. A rejection from the church would have been a huge blow for me. The United Church to me, shows unconditional love for all, something I strongly believe in. I am very grateful to have found the United Church and have it a part of my life. To me the United Church has become an important ally for LGBTQ2 people and those who love and care for them.
