The Unashamed Love Collective is a membership-based community of LGBTQ+ people, allies, parents, family members, and affirming faith leaders.
Membership commitments are for 6 months at a time.
See below for more details!
The Unashamed Love Collective is open to people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and faiths. Full of spiritual nomads (many of whom are deconstructing from an evangelical or conservative faith background), ULC has become a safe haven for LGBTQIA+ people as well as allies, parents of LGBTQIA+ kids, faith leaders, and more. The group has members from coast to coast and even a few around the globe, and the age of participants ranges from early 20s to late 70s. If you’re wondering if this space is for you, the answer is: YES! All you need is a desire to listen, learn, and grow!
How do I join?
Registration for Season 7 begins at 10am MST on Aug 7th. People are encouraged to register early!
When are the monthly meetings?
Our monthly virtual gathering takes place on the last Monday of every month from 6-8 pm MST. The gathering is always recorded and posted in the Facebook group for those who are unable to attend live.
What other resources are available to members?
ULC offers ways to connect with other members in your local area, an opt-in directory of members' location and contact info, and resource lists for additional opportunities to learn and engage.
How is the monthly meeting structured?
Our meetings consist of monthly announcements, an information talk related to our theme of the month, small group breakouts, and Q&A.
What special events does ULC host?
Occasionally ULC hosts a special virtual event featuring an expert on a specific topic that is not tied to our book of the month (mental health, legislature change, intersectional identities, ending conversion therapy, healing from purity culture, etc.). These events are open to the public and tickets are offered to ULC members at a discounted rate!
Is this group a safe space?
Yes. There is a zero-tolerance policy for homophobia, transphobia, or hate speech of any kind and the group is a private space to protect those who are closeted. ULC is also a safe space for people to learn and explore who they are and what they believe. Anyone that cannot adhere to the guidelines will be removed.
What is included in the membership?
Monthly mtgs with themed discussions and breakout groups.
Mid-month Zoom hangouts to foster community.
Access to a private Facebook group with all ULC members. (Note: Throughout the month you can interact with other members both inside and outside the private Facebook group. Some even meetup in person!)
Weekly discussion questions to spark discussion and facilitate conversation.
Are the books included in the membership fee?
No. However, most books can often be found using your local library apps, and links to purchase the books are provided in the Facebook group each month. At the end of each month's gathering, one person's name is drawn to receive a free copy of the next month's book!
When does the next season begin?
Our next season begins on September 1, 2023 and runs through February 2024.
