With the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi just around the corner, Welton and the Rev. Pat Bumgardner – senior pastor of the vibrant Metropolitan Community Church in New York and a tireless advocate for LGBTQI rights – discuss what Russia’s recent passage of anti-gay legislation means not only for the Olympic Games, but for the daily lives of Russia’s LGBTQI population. Speaking to us from the Creating Change Conference in Houston, Rev. Bumgardner, who is also Executive Director of the Global Justice Institute, updates us on their crucial work to combat acts of intolerance and discrimination around the world, as well as the victories – and battles still to go – in the struggle for marriage equality right here in the United States.
