“The Lord is my Shepherd and he knows I’m gay.” – Troy Perry

Troy Perry founded the Metropolitan Community Church: a Protestant denomination that specializes in welcoming the LGBTQ community. Perry was religious for much of his life, but was frustrated by feeling unwelcome as a gay man. With his ministry, he strives to give others a place of love, welcoming, and acceptance. He is also a vocal advocate encouraging other faith communities to open their doors to the queer community.

      Indeed God knows everything. It’s so encouraging to see that many places of worship are welcoming the LGBTQ+ community. I hope the trend will continue and all the LGBTQ+ individuals will be able to practice their religious ceremonies and maintain their belonging to any specific faith community.
