I often forget just how lucky we have it here in the Twin Cities
I was attending University Baptist Church a few years ago, church shopping. (They're members of the American Baptist Church convention, not Southern, ELCA, Missionary, or Missouri Synod) They are open to GLBT folks, gay positive, and while I was there the minister was Nadean Bishop, now retired, an out lesbian.
At the time she had an intern, from a local seminary, who was also a *friend of Dorothy*. As she went up front to give the sermon, she was dressed up in all of the ceremonial vestements. As she passed close to me, I heard her whisper to a friend, "To think that one of my goals in life was to get OUT of wearing a dress!"
Peace and Love, Bruce Chris
