Campaign to Open Doors

Since Nov. 30th of last year, I've been sleeping outdoors as a way to symbolize how the UM church has failed to thus far to 'open doors' to LGBTQ persons. My plan is to sleep outside thru the UM's General Conference in May. Since beginning this crusade, I've been traveling to Conference offices to raise awareness of the issue. 

Tent Witness, April 8th, Topeka, KS

I'll  be traveling to the Kansas City area on April 8th and doing a Tent Witness at the Conference office in Topeka, Kansas. I'm hopeful to be joined by the Rev. Cynthia Meyer for part of this day.
