Black Gays. Black Churches.

Mood Tune: You Brought The Sunshine by The Clark Sisters (YouTube link)

This morning I caught what sounded to be a pretty balanced review of a new book discussing black churches and LGBT issues.

The review by Jacque Reid on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

The book... Their Own Receive Them Not: African American Lesbians and Gays in Black Churches by Rev. Horace L. Griffin.

Not a new topic, but a very necessary book in these times. What's particularly telling is 1) the review was very balanced and without all the jeering that usually goes along by co-hosts on the LGBT topic; and 2) that Jacque Reid apparently has a new job with the Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Don't forget the rally and memorial for Michael Sandy, the NYC hate-crime victim who died last week. It's tonight at 5 pm at NYC City Hall. Info on Keith Boykin and Jasmyne Cannick sites.
