LGBTQ Pride

It is always an exciting time when Mississippi UUs have joint services! This Sunday, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jackson will host our sibling congregations as we celebrate Pride History Month.

October LGBT History Month was created in 1994 by Rodney Wilson, a high school history teacher in Missouri. In 1995, a resolution passed by the General Assembly of the National Education Association included LGBT History Month within a list of commemorative months. October was selected to coincide with National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11), which was already established, and the anniversary of the first march on Washington for gay and lesbian rights in 1979.

The Reverends Edith Love (UUA) and Snowdancer Jim-Becker (MCC) will be our speakers this morning, presenting “Gender Cicadas,” and “The Gay Christian Dilemma in the Deep South, circa 1988-2000,” respectfully.
