Pride Flag

Pride 365

As an Episcopal Church, Trinity Church fully welcomes and affirms lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) people, and we claim that all are made in the image of God. Everyone is invited to participate fully in Trinity’s worship, programs, and advocacy work, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.

Throughout the year, we share stories of leading LGBTQIA advocates through articles, videos, and events as part of our Pride 365 program. And, each June, our community marks Pride Month, inviting everyone to celebrate and recognize the glorious way in which God has created the diversity of humanity.

Stay tuned for new events coming soon!

Raising the Pride Flag

Every June, Trinity clergy, congregation members, and staff join in prayer to raise the Pride flag over Trinity Church. The flag represents Inclusiveness, one of Trinity’s Core Values, and flies at Trinity Church, as well as at St. Paul’s Chapel at Broadway and Fulton, during the month of June to celebrate Pride Month.

The Pride Flag Unfurled

 
 

The Rev. Matt Welsch hoisted the Pride Flag, and offered a prayer, to signify June as Pride Month at Trinity Church Wall Street and St. Paul’s Chapel. The Pride Flag symbolizes Trinity’s Core Value of Inclusiveness.

Stonewall: A Priest Remembers

 

 

The Rev. John Moody was a clergyman on the staff at Trinity Church Wall Street in the summer of 1969. He remembers the Stonewall Uprising from his unique vantage point as a gay man, an Episcopal priest, and a Greenwich Village resident.

 

A Witness to Stonewall

 

 

During June 2019, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in Greenwich Village, June 28-July 1, 1969, events that served as a catalyst for the movement for LGBTQ rights in the United States and around the world. Trinity parishioner Karen Thomas, who was at Stonewall that weekend a half-century ago, offers her recollection and reflection.
