!!!!! UU here to say that the church is super LGBT friendly, pro black lives matter, ecetera. Also you can be another religion and UU. There are Muslim UUs, Christian UUs, Atheist UUs, the services aren't ever really religious but a lot of people go to the UU church then go somewhere else if they feel they need to. It's a lot of storytelling and teaching life lessons more than teaching religion. Like the person telling the story might tell one from the New Testament about Jesus and his diciphels, but emphasize the moral over the religious part. Everyone's really laid back for the most part, and no one will ever get angry at you if you want to leave the church (one year for Sunday school they had us go visit a ton of other churches/mosques/temples so we could see if we would be happier somewhere else) don't go for a year, or anything like that. There are also usually a lot of things that go on outside of Sunday morning, showing local films or dances or Christmas celebrations or celebrating Passover. So yeah if you're kind of unsure about your religion you could always try going to a UU church for a bit, then maybe if you don't feel like that works for you try something else

both my parents kinda laugh at abrahamic religions because they say that being buddhist is the best religion because theres not actually a god. i just dont really feel connected to buddhism tho and i have negative ties with buddhism due to abuse. i haven't told them im scoping out a church.

i did tell my brother. my brother kinda was like "what? why would you go to church?" and i guess it's understandable. i'm gay and transgender and have identified as either atheist or buddhist for most of my life and pagan for like a year. its kind of out of character for me to want to go to church. but i believe there's something more than this.

i'm also scared of being judged by my friends. theyre all gay and/or trans and most of them aren't religious. i'm scared theyre gonna give me the eye roll. i know some of them have had really bad experiences with religion , but i can still be gay and believe in god right?
(i guess it also doesn't help that i always say 'where's the devil cause i wanna fuck him' or bring up my priest kink but lol thats different)
i'm so glad you're checking it out for multiple reasons. like there are my OWN selfish reasons that i want you and just lgbtq people in general to see that we (christians) aren't all horrible xenophobic bigots. honestly i feel like, just as there are different sects of christianity, judaism, buddhism, etc., each church/temple/community is different and have slightly different values and beliefs (like my catholic church is crazy liberal but then my cousin's, in the same city, is very conservative and everyone likes trump and ugh ANYWAY)

well enough about me i'm also glad just because, yeah, if you believe in God or a god that's great. god loves everyone so if you believe that and love him back, more power to you.

it's good that you're willing to try it out. it's good that your thinking about it. everyone has religious enlightenment era sometime in their life where they just want to learn and experiment and your friends will probably have one eventually too. idk just speaking from what i know and perceive and whatever

thank you guys!!

i might try out the UU thing but my friend and i have decided to check out the Episcopal church tomorrow

question:my friend wants us to do a dark makeup look because we're going to the mall beforehand and the Lgbt center after, but is that appropriate? i know with buddhist monasteries ive always been told to do very light/natural makeup or none at all?

are there similar dress code/rules for looks at churches ???

I mean that generally depends on the church tbh, but to be safe at first you might want to do a more natural makeup? Just because I'm not sure what that church is like and you aren't sure either. As long as you dress fairly nicely- try maybe some nice jeans and a nice sweater as the most casual you could get, but again it really depends on the church
