Unitarian "flaming chalice" logo
Unitarianism is a family of churches that reject the traditional Christian doctrine of the Trinity. Present-day Unitarians are very varied in their beliefs, and no particular set of beliefs is required of members. The Unitarian Church in the UK dates from 1774, but the current General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches was formed in 1928.

LGBT history

Unitarians in the UK have long supported equality for LGBT people.

"For the most part, Unitarians take the view that the natural spectrum of sexuality includes both homosexuality and bisexuality. We therefore affirm that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual people have the exact same rights as anyone else, including when it comes to getting married."[1]

In 1977 the General Assembly resolved that the ministry of the denomination be open to all regardless of sex, race, colour or sexual orientation.

A number of Unitarian churches throughout the country are registered for same-sex marriages.

Rainbow LGBTQI Unitarians was launched in 2011 but may since have disappeared.
