Here, finally assembled together in one collection, are Bert Montgomery’s LGBTQ-related musings, columns, and sermons. Bert uses humor, stories, and the Holy Scriptures to challenge the heresy of homophobia within the church and to call for full inclusion and affirmation—in both church and civic life—of our LGBTQ family members, friends, and neighbors. And yes, a rabbi and a preacher really did go to a Pride parade!
“In a climate of oppression and hate, Bert has courageously been the voice of love and inclusion to God’s LGBTQ children in a state and denomination that largely denies their equality.”
— from the Foreword, by Rev. Maurice “Bojangles” Blanchard
