Hist/Bio Note

Galaxies is a spiritual community for lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender people. Much of its cultural heritage derives from Judeo Christian experience but the community interprets that in the light of each member's experience and history. The church is committed to witness to the possibility of transcending the polarities of male and female.
