Richard was a good friend
I’d like to tell gay, lesbian or trans Christian people…
Richard was a good friend, kind man and harmless, though he died of AIDS in 1986. What a tragedy for friends, families, students and parents since information of the disease was not really ready at the time. A friend, a colleague and model for others.
You have the comfort of the community and love of all
in spite of people holding back.
Welcome to the fold.
Come forth and be bold.
Let God only be your judge
Feel the safety of His arms around you
Let my first reaction be welcome.
