Friends Meeting of Washington (FMW) is a vibrant LGBTQ-friendly Quaker Meetinghouse located in Dupont Circle that encourages self-reflection and service to the community.
We welcome all spiritual seekers to join us for worship, fellowship and community service. Members of our community include individuals of many races, faith traditions, genders, sexual orientations, ages and socio/economic backgrounds.
However, members coalesce around a shared set of values that influence what we do in our personal lives, what we believe, and changes we work for in the world. These values or testimonies include the promotion of peace, a commitment to all humanity, an understanding that love is a manifestation of God, and a belief that ”there is that of God in everyone”.

Our community has celebrated same sex weddings and commitment ceremonies for decades. We welcome couples of all genders and orientations. A couple may seek to be married in the Quaker tradition under the care of the community and our spaces are also available to couples not affiliated with the community.
Finally, our spaces have been available for memorial services and celebrations of life since the early days of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. In fact, we were one of the only houses of worship in Washington DC to welcome the family and friends of AIDS victims into our spaces at that time.
