The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles has been in the forefront of the struggle for LGBTQ+ inclusion in our church and equality in our nation for decades. We are working to archive that history as part of telling the story of the arc of inclusion in both the Diocese of Los Angeles and the Episcopal Church. If you have stories, photos, documents or other resources to share, please contact Canon Susan Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
