Statement of Position and Purpose

We believe that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex Catholics in our diversity are members of Christ's mystical body, numbered among the People of God. We have an inherent dignity because God created us, Christ died for us, and the Holy Spirit sanctified us in Baptism, making us temples of the Spirit, and channels through which God's love becomes visible. Because of this, it is our right, our privilege, and our duty to live the sacramental life of the Church, so that we might become more powerful instruments of God's love working among all people.

In early January, the previous Presidential administration made one final attack on LGBTQI rights. During his final days in office the outgoing President stripped the Department of Health and Human Safety of its nondiscrimination rules that prohibited organizations and agencies receiving federal funding from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

We need your help. Join us in sending a message to President Biden, asking him to undo this attack on LGBTQI people and restore the HHS’s safeguards against discrimination. 

Mission Statement

DignityUSA works for respect and justice for people of all sexual orientations, genders, and gender identities—especially gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons—in the Catholic Church and the world through education, advocacy, and support.

Vision Statement

DignityUSA envisions and works for a time when Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Catholics are affirmed and experience dignity through the integration of their spirituality with their sexuality, and as beloved persons of God participate fully in all aspects of life within the Church and Society.
