LGBT Teens Are #PresentPerfect

"You are Perfect, Just as You Are"

After centuries of religion-based oppression, every LGBTQ teen deserves to hear a religious leader say, "Your sexual orientation or gender identity is perfect. You are loved, just as you are."

THOUSANDS of churches, synagogues, sanghas, and other faith communities celebrate LGBTQ people just as they are.

But GLAAD reports that 75% of religious messages in mainstream news coverage are from anti-LGBTQ sources.

Parents who identify as "strongly religious" are significantly more likely to rejects their LGBTQ children. (Family Acceptance Project)

26% of LGBTQ teens are kicked out when they come out, at an average age of 14 years old. 

LGBTQ teens who are rejected by their families are 840% more likely to attempt suicide. 


Join us as we flood social media with a Thunderclap message of love and affirmation, and invite LGBTQ teens and their parents to visit an open-and-affirming faith community. 

We’ll be sharing photos and videos for you to share on social media:

ABOUT #PRESENTPERFECT

After a gay boy died by suicide near her seminary in Houston, Texas, Unitarian Universalist Rev. Joanna Fontaine Crawford created Bring Your Gay Teen to Church Day as her inspired response. That first year, 24 Houston-area congregations participated.

#PresentPerfect is now produced by MyOutSpirit.com, the interfaith social network connecting LGBTQ people of any or no faith tradition with resources that support their spiritual, mental, physical, and social well-being.

Click here to make a donation to support #PresentPerfect.

We are primarily supported by the MyOutSpirit.com memberships of LGBTQ-affirming churches, synagogues, and other body/mind/spirit resources.

Click here to add your open and affirming faith community to MyOutSpirit.com, so LGBTQ teens and their parents can find you year-round, not just during #PresentPerfect.

  • 8 Days Left & 403,000+ People Will Hear About LGBTQ-Affirming Faith Communities So Far!

    June 14, 2016
    After Orlando, publicizing religious affirmation of LGBTQ people is more important than ever.

    The Pulse Nightclub shooter believed his religion condemned LGBTQ people - and apparently himself, for his own same-sex attraction. 

    Let's make sure every LGBTQ teen knows about the thousands of open-and-affirming faith communities waiting to celebrate who they are and whom they love. They need to hear from ALL of us that their sexual attraction, orientation, and/or gender identity is a blessing.

    Imagine how many LGBTQ teens and parents we can reach once your friends sign up!
