LGBTQ Events


Welcome to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota's LGBTQ Events page. We are a "Welcoming Congregation", which in short, means that our church is a safe space for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning and Intersex individuals; we take positions on oppression in our larger communities; and we work to accomplish outreach in our local community. This events page is a small part of that outreach. You can find out more about what it means to be a Welcoming Congregation here.

We hope that you will choose to participate in some of these events, and that we might get to know each other better.

Rainbow Club Movie Nights in the Sanctuary

When was the last time you had a "Family Night" at the movies with your rainbow family? The Rainbow Club is for all people inside and outside of our church community. Join us every 4th Friday at 7:30 p.m. for an evening of fun! Each month we will feature a different movie with an L, G, B, T, or Q theme.

This event is open to all who are interested. Donations are greatly appreciated. The Unitarian Universalist Church of Sarasota is located at 3975 Fruitville Road, Sarasota, FL 34232.

This is more than a movie... It's a chance to get to know one another. Come 15 minutes early and schmooze in the courtyard!

Doors open at 7:10 pm

Movie starts 7:30 pm 

Please no food or drink in the sanctuary.

Poster for the film MILKMay 22, 2015 - Milk (2008)

His life changed history. His courage changed lives. Academy Award winner Sean Penn stars in this stirring celebration of Harvey Milk, a true man of the people. Based on the inspiring true story of the first openly gay man elected to major public office, this compelling film follows Milk’s powerful journey to inspire hope for equal rights during one of the least tolerant times in our nation’s history. With a stunning all-star cast, including Josh Brolin, Emile Hirsh, Diego Luna and James Franco, it’s the emotionally charged story that was proclaimed the Winner of The New York Film Critics Circle Best Picture Award!

Actors: Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, James Franco, Alison Pill, Diego Luna Directors: Gus Van Sant
