Members from a range of religious traditions are meeting in Birmingham Friday for a conference that puts the issues of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people alongside faith. The conference by the Magic City Acceptance Project and Human Rights Campaign Alabama aims to help religious communities accept and advocate for such individuals. Participates are hearing from Reverend Roland Stringfellow. He’s pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of Detroit. He tells WBHM’s Andrew Yeager the conference is about equipping participants with tools to have conversations.
