I don’t think it’s any coincidence that in Portland, Father’s Day coincides with its annual Pride Festival, which celebrates our local lesbian/gay/bisexual/transexual/queer (LGBTQ) community with a parade, live entertainment and more. It’s kind of a big deal around here. Amanda and I decided to celebrate our own way by dropping by Metropolitan Community Church, which describes itself as “a progressive community of faith welcoming all people, with special outreach to the gay, lesbian bisexual and transgender communities.”

Well, what do you think of that? Don’t answer. You might want to get our insider story first. Stop back in a couple of days.
