Washington National Cathedral doesn’t just accept God’s LGBTQIA children—we celebrate their gifts and honor their relationships. Whether in the pews or in the pulpit, this is a place that cherishes our LGBTQIA friends, clergy, staff and family members.
As the final resting place of Matthew Shepard, this Cathedral is committed to being a House of Prayer for All People, no exceptions. Our convictions are simple: Love is love. Love is from God. And if something isn’t rooted in love, it isn’t from God.
Get Involved with the Cathedral’s LGBTQIA Alliance
The LGBTQIA Alliance promotes the inclusiveness of the Episcopal Faith and the Cathedral’s message of “All are Welcome” by helping people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and faith backgrounds find their place in the church.
