Sexuality and gender may have their own Inclusive Church book titles, but these aspects of human identity are very much linked. Trans, non-binary and intersex people are a vital part of the LGBTI+ community.

LGBTI people have made a major contribution to the life of the church through the ages, and in recent decades have become more visible. In many countries, including the UK, there has been growing acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBT&I) people, and awareness of the damage done by prejudice and discrimination.

In the UK, LGBT+ History Month is marked each February.

Inclusive Church works in partnership with a number of campaigning and support LGBTI organisations. The LGBT+ organisation Open Table has a place on our board of trustees.
