Here at the annual national gathering of theFriends General Conference, I was more than a little shocked when, with the other queer Quakers, (FLGBTQC) we entered Virginia Tech’s Memorial Chapel for worship and faced a wall of very hunky, near naked men in stone.
Needless to say, settling into stillness required extra effort on my part.
Besides the stimulating worship, the start of FGC and the connections (and reconnections) both comfort and challenge me. So many thoughtful people who take their roles as humans seriously.
Tuesday afternoon we will hold a rally, Let Love Choose which will publically protest anti-gay initiatives in Virginia and elsewhere while making a case for marriage equality.
I am in good company.
