Christianity and The Advocate

A letter of support published in The Advocate, November 8, 2005.

I just picked up your Nov. 8th edition at the airport and was very pleased to see that you are given the gay Christians more voice. I am a student at Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York where 25% of the students are openly queer. Some of us struggle with the church not accepting us because we are queer and then we struggle with the queer community not accepting us because we are Christian. Each year the Queer Caucus at Union leads the chapels services during National Coming Out week. Last year we had Rev. Irene Monroe and this year we had the Rev. Jeffery A. Haskins. Christ Glaser is a friend of mine from the Presbyterian World and low and behold you featured all three in the Nov. 8th issue. Thanks for giving us more of a voice!
