We are on online ministry and our primary purpose is to bring resources for inclusive LGBT Ministry to all those interested, no matter what part of the globe you are in. We have several contributors who do inclusive Catholic LGBT ministry in different countries. Our Facebook and Instagram pages also feature content by various contributors.
ABOUT THE ADMIN AND FOUNDER:
The original video that links to this page — and which is now located in our Basics of Doctrine section– was my first work in LGBT Ministry. In this video I explained some of the basics of Church Doctrine regarding LGBT Catholics, particularly addressing the parts of Doctrine that are almost never mentioned, as well as sharing some insights and my own lived experience. I have learned so much more since, so as of March 2019 I have turned this page exclusively into a resource page so we can continue building knowledge and building bridges together.
To give you some background information about myself, my name is Yunuen Trujillo and I am a lay minister and an LGBT Catholic. I have been involved in young adult ministry for more than 17 years. As a leader with the Archdiocesan Young Adult Ministry in Spanish (Pastoral Juvenil de la Arquidiócesis de Los Ángeles) I have coordinated religious formation programs for young adults in Spanish. I was also a Catholic Radio Host for 5 years. In addition to this, I am a lecturer on the topic of Social Doctrine of the Church, as this is my specialty. More recently, I got involved with Always Our Children, a Catholic support group for parents and family of LGBT Catholics, and I’m the Religious Formation Coordinator (Sp) with the Catholic Ministry with Lesbian and Gay Persons, an Archdiocesan Ministry in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles (although this webpage is a project that I’m doing completely on my own and not related to that ministry. Any points of view expressed here are my own).
The videos and/or content shown here in no way replace official Religious Formation nor are they comprehensive; however, it is my hope and dream that the information you find here be a “kickstarter” and a motivation for all people doing ministry to learn more about this topic, to learn more about the lived experience of the LGBT Catholic, and to understand the importance of taking Religious Formation and growing in your knowledge of the people you serve.
