We are building a tiny house that is safe, sustainable, and mobile! When completed, it will provide a short-term “Safe House” for an LGBTQ+ individual in the Upstate who has lost their housing due to coming out. Our dream is to bring together Clemson University students, members of the local community and members of Peace Church, UCC.. The Tiny House will also raise awareness of discrimination against LGBTQ+ people. Construction begins August 2017.
Look for our trailer in the lower parking lot of the South Carolina Botanical Gardens when it’s not on “show and tell” visits!
UPDATE: Mark on your calendars, August 13 as the metaphorical ground breaking. Part of worship will focus on hearing stories of individuals in the Upstate who identify as LGBTQ+ and their treatment. Another part of worship will focus on going outside to the trailer that is our foundation, blessing the construction, and doing some work. Yes, it will be a hands on service.
