Southeastern Resistance
Lay delegate Helen Ryde (center in blue shirt) and other self-identified "queer" delegates to the Southeastern Jurisdiction Conference stand in protest at the adverse ruling on their resolution encouraging the UMC to work toward greater LGBTQ inclusion. The resolution was restored to the agenda after a majority of other Southeastern delegates stood in support and the resolution's text was amended. (Southeastern Jurisdiction Photo by Ben Smith)
