New Documentary: Prejudice & Pride: Fire at the UpStairs Lounge

Just in time for Pride month celebrations!

ABC News has just released their original documentary feature:
Prejudice & Pride: Fire at the UpStairs Lounge

This documentary takes us back 45 years ago to the tragic and chilling fire in the UpStairs Lounge in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Until the Pulse attack two years ago, it was the worst attack on American LGBTQ people.

You can find this documentary on abcnews.com, Roku, AppleTV and Amazon Fire.

I discuss these events and the following days in my book Don’t Be Afraid Any More.

A newly published book:Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation by Robert W. Fieseler goes into much greater detail and can be found on many booksellers websites.

The link to the ABC documentary.

Please share this as you feel led.

Greetings and Happy Pride Month / Cuba work update

Greetings and Happy Pride Month!!

As GLBTQ celebrations continue around the world, I thought I’d share a link to an article posted by the Miami Herald newspaper about our church started in Cuba.

MCC is doing good work in Cuba, thanks to Rev Elder Hector Gutierrez and many others, and Mariela Castro continues to help spread MCC’s message.

A wonderful article in the Miami Herald newspaper.
