DETROIT – All That May Freely Serve, a group that works for ordination of qualified gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender candidates in the Presbyterian Church (USA) as Elders, Deacons, and Ministers, will hold its annual fundraising dinner on Friday, Oct. 21.
The keynote speaker at the event will be Pat Kutteles, the mother of Private First Class Barry Winchell. On July 5, 1999 Winchell was murdered at Fort Campbell Kentucky by a fellow infantryman because of his relationship with a transgender woman.
According to All That May Freely Serve, “Kutteles’ appearance in Detroit will personify the fact that the ignorance and prejudice and bigotry against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in our churches and in society and in the military is a matter of life and death.”
The Rev. Dr. Janie Spahr will also speak.
The annual fundraising dinner will take place Friday, Oct. 21 at 6 p.m. at Ford Street Presbyterian Church (631 W. Fort Street in Detroit). For more information call 248-773-0733 or 313-779-5977. For more information on TAMFS visit http://www.tamfs-michigan.org.
