I am a trans nonbinary person who was introduced into the United Church of Canada when I met my amazing and wonderful partner. I wasn’t expecting to be so openly accepted and it fills my heart to know that I can love God & be proud of my gender identity. I have walked in 2 Pride Parades with my home church, and walked in the Montreal Pride Parade during Canada Pride with the Right Rev. Jordan Cantwell, her partner and others from the United Church. As someone who was against organized religion becuase I didn’t believe I could be accepted, I’m happy to admit I was wrong. I hope other people within the LGBTQ community can do what I did, and open themselves up to God’s love.
