Belfast Pride 2012 Events Start Today
The first two of our events during Belfast Pride 2012 take place today, Sunday 29 July.
At 6pm, the first 15 minutes with Christ service takes place in St George’s Church, in High Street, Belfast. Then at 7, also in St George’s, we are showing the film Love Free or Die, which is about Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Anglican bishop.
15 minutes with Christ takes place every evening at the same time and location this week, with the final service on the day of the Belfast Pride parade, Saturday 4 August.
Also today, All Souls’ Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church is holding a discussion The Right to Gay Marriage led by Reverend Chris Hudson MBE. It starts at 4pm, so unfortunately neither Michael nor I will be able to be there, but we wish them all the best. Michael and I had our relationship blessed in All Souls’ on the 7 May 2011. We believe this was the first same-sex union to be publicly celebrated in a church in Northern Ireland in recent history.
