  • Engage Across Differences

Parity works to heal LGBT and faith divides through curious and collaborative conversations – and surprising friendships.

Parity is a faith-based non-profit organization headquartered in NYC that builds bridges across the LGBTQ+ and faith divide. We partner with a broad diversity of faith communities and work to foster understanding between traditionally rejecting faiths and LGBTQ+ people and their families. We create connections between the sacred and the secular by partnering with non-religious community-based organizations.

Our signature bridging programs are:
Holy Dialogues and Converge Groups
Blessed by Difference
Religious Freedom

Healing LGBT and faith divides requires all perspectives. Our projects promote understanding and healing, not despite faith and conviction, but because of it. 
We are stronger together.
