LGBTQ2S+ Activism


In 1982, Affirm was formed to support individual lesbian and gay members of The United Church of Canada and to advocate with the church for their full inclusion.


Affirm's mandate is:

EDUCATION: to promote greater awareness of sexual orientation and gender identity issues.

ACTION: to work to end discrimination against people in church, society and our own organization.

SUPPORT: to help people of all sexual orientations and gender identities find support and community within the United Church.


As East End United we are honoured to be a part of this progressive legacy. We are justice-oriented and aim to bring more inclusivity to our services, causes, and actions. We offer support to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. You can identify as LGBQ2S+ and have faith. All are welcome to explore their faith in a supportive environment.
