We had the honor to speak with Rev. Troy Perry. Rev. Perry is a gay rights and human rights activist, and founder of Metropolitan Community Churches ( MCC) with the goal to help LGBTQ believers like himself feel closer to God.
MCC started with 12 people in Perry’s home and has grown to now have a presence in 37 countries with 222 affiliated churches.
Rev Perry, who has been invited to the white house 5 times, talks to us about his struggle to organize the first pride in Los Angeles and how he used prayer and friendship to empower him to fight towards LGBTQ equality for all these years.
