At the start of each year, Welton sits down with the Rev. Elder Pat Bumgardner, senior pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of New York, where she ministers to LGBTQ and other marginalized communities of faith. In the face of overwhelming odds facing the LGBTQ community around the world – and growing threats here at home – she continues to do work that changes hearts, minds, and lives. Rev. Pat will join Welton this week to discuss new and unexpected challenges – and the real progress that’s been made in securing and preserving the rights of LGBTA individuals.
