MCC Conference 2013: Gay pastors talk HIV

mcc-logoThe online edition of the Windy City Times has a short piece about the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC) 25th General Conference in Chicago.

“HIV and AIDS: Keeping the Promise and Making the Connections” was one of the panel discussions held on July 5. Rev. Renee McCoy, assistant director of prevention education at Lifelong AIDS Alliance, and other members of the MCC public policy team spoke about the current status of the global fight against HIV/AIDS.

“We have to eliminate stigma and discrimination by promoting love. … Local (MCC) churches have to move HIV/AIDS a little bit higher up on our agenda,” said McCoy. McCoy called on the MCC church to talk about what it means to have a healthy sexual life including condom use.
