What is Believe Out Loud?

Believe Out Loud is an online community that empowers Christians to work for justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) people. Reaching a monthly average of more than 3 million people per month, we are the leading platform in Christian faith and LGBTQIA advocacy.

Members of Believe Out Loud hold many distinct identities, and together we are creating a world where all Christian churches welcome and affirm LGBTQIA people. On our daily blog and social networks, we offer a community where friends and allies can access resources for their journeys and share their own stories of Christian faith and LGBTQIA advocacy. Rooted in a framework of justice, Believe Out Loud affirms our members in their identities and challenges LGBTQIA Christians to “go and do likewise” (Luke 10:37).

Believe Out Loud was formed in 2009 to encourage Christian clergy to voice their affirmation for LGBTQIA people. We continue this work by inviting affirming churches to publicly proclaim their welcome through our Welcoming Church Map, which is a critical resource for LGBTQIA Christians and allies looking for a church home. Through our campaigns feature, we provide opportunities for our members to advocate for LGBTQIA people in their churches, denominations, and communities.

With your support, and the support of our many partners and friends, we are Christians spreading the good news of God’s inclusive love for ALL. Add your voice to our chorus today!
