Glitter+ash wednesday was a resounding success!

Your loving support has provided a visible and tangible witness to love for LGBTQ+ people of faith and their allies - all over the world!

Parity staff and volunteers shipped ashes for 15,000 people in 29 different states and three countries, to 12 different denominations and 150 sites.

I attended your workshop. It’s what I’ve been craving all my life - to find a group of people who don’t think I can’t be who I am while still identify as a spiritual/religious person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to attending future Parity events. Can’t thank you enough.

For the first time since I’ve come out, I have a place where everyone is queer, and I am completely safe. I don’t have to ask or question for a second whether someone will accept me. It was the most beautiful thing I could have asked for.
