June 24, 1994 / November 1994



|Rev. Kittredge Cherry speaks at Hands Around the God-Box, a prayer demonstration to end homophobia in the church.  MCC founder Troy Perry is clearly visible in the crowd.  Hands Around the God Box was an interfaith prayer vigil to end religious homophobia.  It was held at the Interchurch Center in New York City on June 24, 1994. More than 500 people from 15 lesbian and gay religious groups joined hands and were linked by a rainbow ribbon that completely encircled the Interchurch Center at 475 Riverside Drive.
