Gender & Sexual Identity

Throughout our lives as we explore the world around us, we also discover elements of ourselves.  For the LGBTIQ community the process of coming out, transitioning and experimenting with gender and sexual identity may come with public or private struggles for acceptance, some which may be difficult or painful. Through ritual we can honor the range of emotions and experiences along this journey, support each other to become our true and best selves, and celebrate what makes each of us special and unique.
