What is Thrive LGBTQ+ About?

Mission Statement

Thrive LGBTQ+ is dedicated to full inclusion for LGBTQ+ people through education and advocacy by confronting religion-based stigma, conversion therapy, ex-gay ministry, and all other attempts to change or repress LGBTQ+ people’s innate sexuality and identity.

Vision Statement

Affirming LGBTQ+ people is honoring the Image of God in us, as we are. Thrive LGBTQ+ believes most people seek to love and affirm LGBTQ+ people but may have been conditioned through religious stigma to shame and condemn us and our relationships. Through forced behavioral modification and imposing a false context on our lives this has created systemic oppression that keeps some LGBTQ+ from flourishing. Thrive LGBTQ+ seeks to change that by empowering LGBTQ+ people and our allies to navigate out of, heal from, and live beyond stigmatizing religion. Whether an LGBTQ+ person of faith or not, we seek to help people move forward to live emotionally and relationally thriving lives within the context of a healthy self-esteem, life-giving relationships, and equal standing within their community.

Values Statement

Thrive LGBTQ+ celebrates the truth that all LGBTQ+ people are worthy of dignity, honor, respect, spiritual affirmation, and full equality in every sector of life. We stand against fear-based religious efforts to promote ex-gay ideology, “conversion” therapy, and social/political inequality. We applaud all courageous efforts to help LGBTQ+ people develop and have access to more life-giving resources as they seek to avoid or escape oppressive religion to improve their lives.
