Yesterday, was historic in the Episcopal Diocese of California. Bishop Marc Andrus, his wife Sheila Andrus and Anglican Nigerian Human Rights Activist Davis Mac-Iyalla rode together in the San Francisco Pride Parade along with a huge diverse crowd of Episcopalians and other people of faith who support equality for all. Many thanks to the great work of Integrity/Oasis on putting an array of events together connecting local Bay Area gay, lesbian and transgender folks with their sisters and brothers on the other side of the planet. Matt and I were thrilled to be part of this awesome display of solidarity, compassion, joy and justice seeking.
