Disciples LGBTQ Alliance Records
At the 1977 General Assembly of the Christian Church in Kansas City, Carol Blakely of Caldwell, Idaho, a Disciple mother of a gay son, called all Disciples to name the reality that LGBTQ+ and affirming persons are our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, [siblings], parents, congregants, pastors and staff. The General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) meeting in Orlando, Fla., July 13-17, approved a resolution to welcome people regardless of their race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, marital status, physical or mental ability, political stance or theological perspective.
