CLOUT Community and Commitments

Statement of Commitment – Adopted November 1990; Revised January 1999

CLOUT is proudly progressive, actively anti-racist, creatively spiritual, milagro bound

Christian Lesbians OUT, CLOUT, is a developing coalition of “out” lesbian Christians in solidarity with one another. Because Christian institutions have historically devalued the gifts and stifled the voices of lesbian women, we hold our identity as “Christian” and”Lesbian” in creative tension. We respect the right of every woman to define for herself what it means to be both Christian and lesbian.Our primary purpose is to claim our spiritual and sexual wholeness, to proclaim the goodness of our lives, our ministries and our relationships, and to empower ourselves and each other to challenge the churches to which we belong.
