About

The Global Network of Rainbow Catholics (GNRC) brings together organizations and individuals who work for pastoral care and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQI) people and their families. The Network works for inclusion, dignity and equality of this community in the Roman Catholic Church and society. The GNRC was founded in October 2015 at the Rome conference, “Ways of Love”, with 80 participants from 30 countries. To date, the GNRC represents 25 groups of LGBTQI Catholics, their families and friends from all continents.

    Is there a particular process whereby a group can be allied? We are in New Zealand.

      Thanks for this enquiry, which I personally do not know the answer. When we met in Rome last October, we set up a steering committee to thrash out a range of issues including that of eligibility for membership (and I assume, procedures to join). I’ll pass this on the the appropriate people.

      I’ve been told that there is not yet a formal process for joining the network, but this will be discussed at the next meeting of the steering committee, or of the working group „Organisational Development“.
