Keith Spare created this slideshow outlining the history of the United Methodist Gay Caucus, which was the forerunner of Affirmation:
United Methodists for LGBTQ Concerns and the Reconciling Ministries Network. The slideshow focuses on early years of LGBTQ organizing
in the United Methodist Church – 1964-1980 – with information drawn from the extensive records from the time that Spare has preserved.
This slideshow was presented at the national convocation of the Reconciling Ministries Network in St. Louis on July 26-29, 2018.
