May 20th: Pride LGBTQ/Pride Sunday: 81 Words: From Diagnosis to Dignity with Steve Wilson.

Today’s sermon is little more than a theatrical adaptation/rip off of This American Life’s, 2002 award winning radio program titled “81 Words.” Written and read by Alix Spiegel, the story walks us through the very human twists, turns, oddities and quirks of how the American Psychiatric Association (APA) got to the decision in 1973 to remove the 81 words that defined homosexuality as a mental disorder.
