If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Troy Perry, founder of Metropolitan Community Church

finished this icon of Troy Perry, founder of the Metropolitan Community Church (1968), a Christian church that affirms and nurtures LGBT people. Perry started off with 12 people: "Nine were my friends who came to console me and to laugh, and three came as a result of the ad." There are now over 300 MCC churches in 18 countries.
