LGBTQ Ministry

The Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis affirms and values the participation of LGBTQ persons in every aspect of church life, including ordained ministry. The sacrament of marriage is offered equally to same-sex and opposite-sex couples. Diocesan employment practices forbid discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

A centerpiece of the LGBTQ ministry in our diocese is our participation in Pride Month with groups gathering to march in the Indianapolis Pride March and to staff a booth for the diocese at related Pride events. The Diocese of Indianapolis parade marchers, declaring “God’s Love for All People,” were recognized with the award for Best Walking Group by Circle City Pride in 2017.
