In our ongoing effort to support Marriage Equality throughout the United States and around the world Metropolitan Community Churches asks us to become a voice for Marriage Equality, organize Marriage Equality events, meet our elected officials, and donate our time and money to this ministry of justice. Today, Reverend Judith Maynard and some members of MCC of Albuquerque joined GetEQUAL at Civic Plaza in downtown Albuquerque for a Marriage Equality rally. Earlier that day Reverend Maynard accompanied two lesbian couples to the Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office for marriage licenses. Though both couples were denied marriage licenses, Reverend Maynard was allowed to perform a marriage ceremony in the waiting area.

In light of the recent suicides and bullying of our LGBTIQ youth, it is important for us to encourage all people, of all sexual orientations, to “take your next step” in living openly and powerfully on this October 11th.
