LGBTQIA Support Circle

Fri 11 AM | Episcopal

Gwen Fry

Making our way through the world as a member of the LGBTQIA community is not easy and can often be frightening and unsafe. This support circle is a safe place, within a safe place here at the Goose, to share our joys and fears, and to offer and receive support on our journeys through life. Whether it is your first time or you are a seasoned veteran attending the Goose, the queer community has an affirming home here.

Gwen Fry

The Reverend Gwen Fry is an ordained Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Arkansas. Her experience coming out as a trans woman of faith makes her keenly aware of the necessity for the equality of all God’s children. Experiencing the effects of discrimination first hand, she has been actively involved in the work of justice in the transgender community both in Arkansas and across the Episcopal Church. Gwen is an advocate and activist for the transgender community who was a leader in the coalition of organizations who fought back the anti-transgender bills introduced in the Arkansas General Assembly this year. She is the Vice President of National Affairs for Integrity USA. She is a board member of Pridecorps, an LGBTQ youth center in Little Rock, Arkansas. An active member of TransEpiscopal, Gwen, also serves on its steering committee.
