True Colors (LGBTQ+)
True Colors is our LGBTQ+ team of those who identify as LGBTQ+ as well as those straight and cis friends seeking to be decent allies. Together we aim to provide welcome and support to the LGBTQ+ community here at Highland and in our city, as well as educational opportunities and advocacy efforts for all of us believing that each person is uniquely and wonderfully created in a divine image.
On the second Sunday of each month True Colors invites Highland members and visitors to join them in the commons (the area just outside the sanctuary) for a meet and great time. It’s a space for the LGBTQ+ community and allies to converse and be together.
PRIDE at Highland
Here's a news story from WHAS11 News from June 2022.
LGBTQ+ Education at Highland
One of our 2022 pastoral interns recently led an educational series entitled “Unapologetically Queer” where attendees explores reading scripture, culture, and the church with a queer lens.
In honor of PRIDE, we cohosted with several other congregations here in the Highlands and in partnership with Drag Daddy Productions Louisville’s first Drag Revival: A Family Friendly Spiritual Night of Song and Celebration. Drag queen Ms. May O’Nays performed her show Tuba Atonement before we had an ole fashioned hymn sing.
