SUNDAY AT THE FORUM LOCATION: Great Hall (unless otherwise noted) TIME: 10:05 am Sunday, June 30, 2019 Ordained by Angels: The Life and Ministry of an AIDS Chaplain The Reverend Canon Jerry Anderson was an openly gay Episcopal priest serving in Washington, DC when the AIDS crisis struck in the early 1980s. As his partner and countless friends died, he committed himself to caring for all those suffering from the disease. On the day that New York City celebrates Global Pride, Jerry talks with Susan Anderson-Smith about the past thirty-five years of ministering to AIDS patients as the illness itself has changed. How did he carry on in the midst of such immense injustice, pain and loss? How has the landscape changed for both HIV/AIDS and for the gay men that were so disproportionately affected by it? What role does the Church still have in issues of LGBTQ+ justice and equity?
