New look for RevTroyPerry.org  8/1/2011

I'm relaunching my website to better address the changing environment.  It will be more interactive and take advantage of new features available on the web.  This classic location will continue, but will no longer be updated with new material.  You can enjoy the new content at: revtroyperry.org/wp1.  As this is a work in progress, there may be a broken link here or there.  The material will be migrating.  Please feel free to interact - that's one of the reasons for the move.


In response to the June 14 ruling by Judge James Ware.
updated 06/15/201

Phillip and I are thrilled on the ruling that just came out: U.S. District Court Judge James Ware just ruled that former U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker did not have to recuse himself from the federal case against Proposition 8 because he is gay and in a long-term committed relationship. Now it's up to the California Supreme Court!

Today (7/27) is Rev Perry's Birthday

Happy Birthday!!!

After 37 years of life changing and world changing ministry, Rev Elder Dr Troy Perry retired from his role as moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches in 2005.  But not from his roles of preaching, public speaking and striving for social justice for GLBT people and all people around the world.

Welcome to Rev Perry's website, where we will explore the past, present and future of this exciting world leader's life, through photographs, stories and ongoing events.
