Where to livestream your worship this weekend: LGBT-affirming churches, mosques and synagogues offering online services

As we all adjust to new routines in the midst of the developing COVID-19 crisis, Believe Out Loud is committed to finding ways for our community to continue to be connected to affirming spiritual resources. Houses of worship are now transitioning to online-only prayer, services and gatherings. We have gathered below links to free livestream, video or podcast worship resources from LGBT-affirming organizations.

 

Note: This post will continue to be updated as we gather more resources. If you have an LGBT-affirming spiritual community to add to this list, please write to us at info@intersections.org.
