In the very beginnings of the gay liberation movement, there was one church that recognised the need to be there for the outcasts of the time. Of course, not everything was rosy and the road ahead was a challenging one to travel on. But brave people took matters into their hands to create a church for all. There are still challenges to be mastered, there are changes to be made and there are shortcomings to recognise and resolve. Get to know how the Metropolitan Community Church started, what it had to do with the Pride Marches and how it took on the challenges since its beginnings. I talked to rev. dr. Axel Schwaigert about MCC about the good and hard.
A few weeks ago, Renato was my guest where we talked about his book. This interview is about his personal life and how a sentence said by a professor haunted him through his life. Through learning and a few meaningful experiences he found his way towards healing.
