On June 23, PHS welcomed Rev. Ashley DeTar Birt, Rev. Shanea D. Leonard, Rev. Bertram Johnson, Rev. Dr. Derrick McQueen, and Rev. Dr. Eric Thomas for a roundtable discussion about LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the Presbyterian church.

Panelists shared how their personal experience shaped their ministry, how the church can be more open to all LGBTQIA+ people in the denomination, and how we can document a complete history of LGBTQIA+ people in the church.
