Shelley Finson on Homophobia in the United Church

Rev. Shelley Finson, who was one of the leading figures in bringing feminist concerns to mainstream Christianity in Canada in the 1970s and early 1980s, also faced heterosexism and homophobia in her work as a theological educator in the United Church. In this eight-minute audio clip, she talks about a particular experience around a position she applied for in the early 1980s, and then talks more generally about some of her experiences doing theological education at an institution in Halifax after that.
