    Abstract

    Religion plays a major part in the changes that have taken place with
    regard to the recognition of rights of Lesbian, Gay, Transgender,
    Bisexual and Intersex (LGBTI) people. In today’s world, growing activism
    around sexual and gender diversity meets increased hostility towards
    LGBTI people. This research article presents the design of a collaborative
    research project to explore and investigate the empirical situation of
    European churches towards inclusivity of LGBTI people. The article is
    innovative in its theoretical framework on inclusivity and in the
    operationalization of a research tool to be used for other geographical
    contexts.
