Faith Communities for the LGBTQ Community

Out Boulder County works to foster healthy relationships with our faith community. We have many open & affirming congregations in the area that welcome and celebrate LGBTQ community members. We are developing a list of open & affirming faith communities in Boulder County, this list is not exhaustive.

If you are a faith leader and would like to have your place of worship added to this list, please email our Education & Program Manager, Michal Duffy (they/them) at mduffy@outboulder.org. If you are interested in hosting a LGBTQ+ training for your faith community, please learn more on our LGBTQ Training page.

We also have a few spirituality related groups that meet regularly.
