But anyway, T and I were also in San Francisco to attend the 19th Biennial Convention of Dignity USA. Dignity USA is the largest LGBT Catholic organization in the U.S. with over 40 chapters throughout the U.S. We're members of the Boston chapter.
We had a terrific time and met so many awesome people, all working for a more inclusive and welcoming Catholic Church. The vision statement:
DignityUSA envisions and works for a time when Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Catholics are affirmed and experience dignity through the integration of their spirituality with their sexuality, and as beloved persons of God participate fully in all aspects of life within the Church and Society.It really is a great way to integrate who you are with your Catholicism. And yes, you CAN be gay and Catholic!
