Support and Community
Seventh-day Adventist Kinship
SDA Kinship has been supporting and advocating for LGBTQ Adventists and those who love them for over 35 years and has regional chapters all over the world and many private Facebook groups for talking to people who understand exactly what it's like to be both Adventist and LGBT.
Intercollegiate Adventist GSA Coalition
(IAGC) The IAGC is just a few years old, but it's growing quickly. It's the umbrella group for GSAs on Adventist colleges and universities, and they work to promote dialogue, awareness, and support for LGBT students on Adventist campuses. There's a public group and a closed group for additional support.
Q Christian Fellowship (formerly Gay Christian Network)
Q Christian Fellowship (originally started by Justin Lee as the Gay Christian Network) is a support organization for LGBT Christians who are both Side A (believe same-sex unions can be blessed by God) and Side B (believe celibacy is the only option). Their annual conference is an incredible space for worship, networking, and connecting with other LGBT Christians and allies/advocates.
Welcoming and Affirming Churches
A database of welcoming and affirming churches. For Adventist churches, additional recommendations are available for Kinship members.
Believe Out Loud
An online community celebrating diversity and affirming historic Christian principles while advocating for full inclusion of LGBT people in faith communities.
Renewed Heart Ministries
A non-profit ministry dedicated to teaching about following Jesus (not just being a Christian) and following the often difficult path of survival, resistance, liberation, restoration and transformation. Herb Montgomery, an Adventist speaker and author, is the director, and he also helps start Heart Groups, which are modeled on the small/home churches of early Christianity. (Herb's endorsement of the SGA film is that he was "unexpectedly blown away" and "can't recommend it highly enough" for those seeking to follow Jesus.)
