Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement (LGCM)
The Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement is a UK-based international Charity which challenges homophobia and transphobia, especially within the Church and faith based organisations, as well as working to create and praying for an inclusive church.
The organisation started in April 1976 as the Gay Christian Movement (GCM) and changed the name to recognise the contribution of the female membership ten years later. LGCM has continued to grow, despite opposition and numerous attempts to get the organisation to fold and now has members from all corners of the world and from all the major denominations as well as no denominational affiliation. Our membership is open to all people regardless of sexual orientation or faith belief as long as they uphold our Statement of Conviction.
This statement was approved on the 3rd April 1976 and hasn’t been amended at any time since. At the same time the Inaugural General Meeting also agreed upon the aims of the organisation which are also still as pertinent today as they were 33 years ago.
