Remembering Saints


They matter to us who are LGBTQI pioneers today, because there was, oh, a whole lot of people before us who paved the way that we're walking today.

All Saints' Day is today.  All Hallows' Eve last night was meant to scare the bejezus out of evil in order to make today an all holy kind of day.

So, let's remember the saints before us, and where they led and are leading us: Harvey Milk was a saint. Mychal Judge of 9/11 fame; Saints Pepetua and Felicity; St. John of the Cross; David Kato; Jeanne Manford; Henri Nouwen; Adrienne Rich; Bayard Rustin; Matthew Shepard; Pauli Murray...

Lord in your mercy...

Hear our prayer...
