Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Read the story, "The Pride Rainbow Project" until you are comfortable presenting it.

Description of Activity

Participants hear a story about a group of Canadian Unitarian Universalist youth acting out of love to help bring marriage equality to Canada.

Tell participants that this story is about a group of Unitarian Universalist youth, very much like them, who decided to try and make a difference in their country. Ask them to reflect, while the story is being read, on what about Unitarian Universalist love would cause these young people to do what they did.

Tell or read the story.

Invite participants to share their reflections. Note that this story is about more than one type of love: a romantic love that motivates people to partner and marry, and the agape love the youth demonstrated by supporting the right of all individuals to express this romantic love fully.
