Gay Games 9

The UCC is going to sponsor the Gay Games 9 this year in Cleveland.

Towleroad.com reports:

This year, the United Church of Christ is set to become the first religious denomination to serve as a major sponsor of the Gay Games, The New York Times reports: The denomination, the United Church of Christ, has its headquarters in Cleveland, which, along with Akron, is one of two cities that will play host to the more than 35 sporting and cultural events scheduled to be part of Gay Games 9. Geography, however, is only one reason the church agreed to become a major sponsor; ideology loomed larger.

The UCC has really stepped up on LGBT rights this year, including the lawsuit in North Carolina for marriage equality. My mom is a UCC member, So proud.
