A Few Minutes With The Pope

Posted by Censor Librorum on Apr 2, 2008 | Categories: Lesbians & Gays

The upcoming papal visit will generate a lot of press coverage by TV, radio, newspapers and the internet. New Ways Ministry hopes to make a good use of this opportunity to help the pope and others in our church hear the voices of those who support lesbian/gay inclusion and equality.

On April 10, 2008, New Ways will host a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC featuring four prominent lesbian and gay Catholics speaking about their lives, loves and hopes for the Church.heather_mizeur-2.jpg

Entitled “A Few Minutes with the Pope: Lesbian/Gay Catholics Speak About Their Church,” the press conference will feature four leaders in the worlds of social service, literature, politics and journalism.

Teresa DeCrescenzo, Executive Director of Gay Lesbian Adolescent Social Services (GLASS), Los Angeles; Gregory Maguire, author of more than a dozen novels, most notably Wicked, which was the basis of the Tony-award winning Broadway musical; Heather Mizeur, Delegate representing the 20th District in Maryland and a leader in the debate about legalizing same-sex marriage; and Richard Rodriguez, social and cultural commentator, author, and Peabody-award winning contributor to PBS’ News Hour with Jim Lehrer.
