“Be yourself,” you've been told -- and have maybe told others. How is that possible? How is it possible to NOT be yourself? Why does it matter?

Connecting in Community
Drag Queen Story Hour
Invite Friends!

Saturday, March 20th, 10:00-11:00am
Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real. Angel will be reading 3-4 books, performing a lip sync song, and engaging with the children. Register to receive the Zoom login
Here’s our flyer.  Read about DQSH here
BLUUBerries and BLUUBerry Youth

Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism (BLUU) is excited to host Saturday gatherings for Black UU children and youth, BLUUBerries and BLUUBerry Youth. (BLUUBerries are ages 6-12. BLUUBerry Youth are ages 12-18.) Our theme for this 8-week winter cycle is “Liberation through our Faith”. Saturday Jams have community building, worship and faith development, cultural education, identity development, and leadership development. This cycle of the Berries and Youth meet on Saturdays at 2 p.m. Eastern for Summer jams until March 13. Register here. 

UU Young Adult Network

The UU Young Adult Revival Network (YARN) is a project to rebuild the continental UU young adult network! YARN offers a community for UUYAs to get together in a safe space, growing identity groups (e.g., Black UUYAs and Countering Oppressions), CONlines, aka online conferences, monthly worship series and leadership calls, and a small group ministry program. YARN Is supported by San Francisco UU, Joe Chapot, Ministerial Assistant and Young Adult Coordinator. Learn more about YARN through this short video.  Visit the YARN website and RE Announcements doc for more information.

Resources for Healing

We offer children, youth, and adults resources for moving through separation, grief, and healing as the pandemic drags on and we are not able to gather freely with family and friends.  View the resources here, which will be updated on an ongoing basis.
