LGBT+ World Religion Links

LGBT+ World Religion Links

An effort has been made to link only to web sites that do not have erotic material or that link to adult web sites. Some resource sites rely on links to adult web sites for funding. One must use judgment when checking any web site. We do not advocate going to any adult or erotic web sites.

We do not make any claims as to how authentic any web site is to the traditional beliefs of any world religion, or to the sacred writings of any world religion. Anybody clicking on a link needs to do personal research and decide on the validity of the material presented.

This page contains links to web sites with information about gay Jewish, Islamic, Wiccan, and Pagan spirituality, beliefs, and practices.

You are welcome to suggest web more resource sites that can be added to the links on this page. Click here to send an email.
