Seek Ye First the Kingdom: The Story of LGBT Acceptance in Rochester Churches & Beyond

When: Wed., May 1, 6:30 p.m. 2019
Phone: 428-8370
From a gathering of 12 people in his Los Angeles home in 1968, Troy Perry launched what became the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Church and a movement toward inclusion in the Christian faith, one that continues in mainline denominations and small storefront churches worldwide as LGBTQ+ Christians demand acceptance. This talk will trace religion’s gradual acceptance and embrace of LGBTQ+ people from its roots in MCC through Protestant churches in America and into the modern day.
