UUSD is a Welcoming Congregation, a program that is completely voluntary for Unitarian Universalist congregations seeking to be inclusive toward gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning (GLBTQ) people.
Our Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) developed this program because LGBTQ people are often met with a disproportionate amount of fear, ignorance, or outright hostility when attempting to participate in religious communities.
We worked to have the State Legislature pass the Delaware Civil Union and Equality Law, effective January 1, 2012, that provided legal protections and benefits for same-sex couples. In 2015, members of our congregation were on the front lines of advocating for the Delaware Legislature to approve same sex marriage. We invite anyone of any affiliation or background who is interested in being married at UUSD to contact our minister.
We are welcoming to everyone—people of different genders, races, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and sexual orientations.
