Support for Rev. Amy DeLong | Love On Trial
On Friday, WCCO News ran a beautiful segment featuring my sister’s partner, Rev. Amy DeLong . The talented and lovely Rachel Slavik from WCCO told Amy’s story in a beautiful and positive piece that you can watch if you click: HERE . Amy is on trial in the Methodist Church because she performed a same-sex marriage and because she herself is an openly-gay pastor. Amy states in her interview: “I fell in love with my partner at the same time I fell in love with my church.”
I will be in Kaukauna, WI the week of June 20th documenting the trial and offering my unconditional support in the one way that I best know how ~ through photojournalism ! I will be blogging every day from the trial, I am going to open myself up and dish out my heart to my readers in an effort of raising awareness about what is happening in our country ~ especially in light of the gay marriage ban that the MN senate is currently trying to pass on our upcoming election ballots. I am going to talk about some of my own personal life struggles, my family, my past, and most importantly, of my sister’s loving relationship and how much it means to me to see them make history during that week.
