The forty-year movement for LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the PC(USA) and its two predecessor denominations comprises a vital recent chapter of American history. In honor of Pam McLucas Byers, the first executive director of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians, PHS is collecting, preserving, and sharing stories from across the theological spectrum about ordination and marriage rights.
