Celebration of Spirit Coalition

Washington, DC

This extraordinary coalition brings together a broad spectrum of faith communities comprised of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered individuals who practice their spirituality openly. The coalition includes local communities of faith who are supportive of and include of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered individuals. The Celebration of the Spirit Coalition partner organizations represent a variety of faith traditions, including Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Unitarian Universalist, Centers for Spiritual Living, Pagan, Wiccan, and Earth Religions. It celebrates the diversity of these communities as well as their common bonds. Our annual service demonstrates the breadth, depth and sincerity of our faith, exposing the lie that right-wing fundamentalists have a monopoly on faith and religion.

We take pride that our community expresses its religious faiths in a myriad of ways, each sacred and revered with years of tradition. People of many different sexual and gender orientations are part of these faith based communities, but sometimes excluded from them because of their differences.

For many years the Celebration of the Spirit Coalition has brought together, through its Pride Week Interfaith Service, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Straight people of differing faiths, to give voice and welcome to those excluded by others.

The coalition is the successor organization to WAG/LIA and has held major interfaith services celebrating Pride week and other major GLBT occasions since the early 1980’s. Co-sponsored a series of cultural and educational seminars, discussions, and events improves the understanding of, and appreciation for, the diversity within our metropolitan area.. Together we expand the dialogue among the many faith communities and ethnic backgrounds represented. Our efforts show the unique ability of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender people of faith to transcend the walls created by orientation, race, religion and gender expression. We are proud of our interfaith service to create an ever expanding celebration of spirituality.
