Talking with Friends, Families, and Colleagues about Marriage for Gay and Lesbian Couples

Developed by DignityUSA with the assistance of Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

There is no question that marriage and other forms of recognition for gay and lesbian couples are tough issues for many Catholics. Happily, most Catholics want to do the right thing, both from a faith perspective and in recognition of the gay people in their lives whom they love and respect. They’re just not sure what the right thing is.

The Beatitudes of Dignity

Blessed are you, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, straight sister or brother—you are a unique and glorious reflection of God's astounding creativity and love!

Blessed are you when you dare to bring the truth of who you are into loving relationship with others—you heal and strengthen the body of Christ!

Blessed are you who challenge stereotypes and caricatures—you bring light to the world!

Blessed are you who speak out against religious hypocrisy—you help to birth justice and peace!

Transgender Discussion List

The purpose of this list is to provide an opportunity for transgender individuals within DignityUSA to explore questions about issues of spirituality and acceptance both within DignityUSA and the society as a whole. We hope, given the relatively small numbers of transgender persons in the world, that being able to network with each other by way of this list will help in the establishment of a sense of community between transgender members of DignityUSA. We also hope it serves as a resource for DignityUSA as a whole to find out information about being transgender.
