          TROY PERRY is the founder of the Metropolitan Community Church, a church known for celebrating and accepting the LGBTQ community. His personal story of coming out, to himself, his family and his church is touching and inspiring. After being told to resign as a preacher in a local church in Illinois, Perry thought his relationship with God was over. It wasn’t until after a suicide attempt that he had an epiphany; God wanted him to create a church for the queer community, and in1968 he did just that. Since then, MCC has grown significantly, reaching multiple cities internationally. He has preformed same sex unions as early as 1970 and ordained women as pastors since 1972. He has also been active in advocacy work, opposing the Briggs Initiative and Anita Bryant in the Save the Children Campaign in the ‘70s. He planned the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1979 with Robin Tyler and has even been invited to speak at the White House multiple times.
