Preach it, Sister! The article tells her story, her recent court cases (church court, that is) and of her compassion for those who are left out.
The article begins:

I also just ran across this website-- The LGBT Religious Archives Network. Here is what it is about in a sentence:
And while I am on the topic a thank you from Michael Adee and Bear Ride from More Light Presbyterians for your speaking out (in whatever way you do so) for inclusivity.
The LGBT Religious Archives Network (LGBT-RAN) is an innovative venture in preserving history and encouraging scholarly study of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) religious movements around the world.
