Yes. Our church loves and welcomes people of every gender and sexual orientation, and includes them in all levels of leadership and worship. We have members and active friends in the LGBTQIA+ community, have had gay clergy, and ordained a lesbian member of the church to the ministry of word and sacrament. Inclusion is even part of our offical bylaws: "The First Congregational Church of Branford affirms the full diversity of God's creation and welcomes people of differing views, national and ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations, without regard to worldly condition. We hope you will share your particular gifts and faith journeys with us and join us in our worship and work."
