Silent Auction for LGBT Asylum Seekers

On Saturday, May 24, I joined my friend, the Reverend Beverly Dale, in a silent auction to raise funds for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender people from foreign lands, who seek asylum in this country because they would be persecuted and killed in their home lands. Speakers at the event came from such countries as Jamaica and Uganda, countries notorious for their violent homophobia. The event took place at Tabernacle United Church, 37th and Chestnut streets, and it raised funds for the LGBT Asylum Support Task Force of Hadwen Park Congregational Church, whose web address is lgbtasylum.org.
