Title

Chrysalis: The Newsletter of Metropolitan Community Church Vol. 2 No. 3

Description

The Chrysalis is a newsletter created by the Metropolitan Community Church, a religious institution which served as "a specific ministry to Gay people." In this volume, there are three written articles, the first of which discusses the concerning nature of our desire to conform and alter our values to concur with those of the majority. Shelley Hamilton writes that Jesus would have wanted us, as the salt of the Earth, to proudly stand in the minority for what we believe in, rather than let our morals go to waste (like salt in the sun). In "Mainly for Women", Faith G. validates the struggles of being a woman, particularly in terms of dealing with patriarchal lifestyle expectations. Finally, in "Huswifover", Roz writes comically about a couple that struggles with how to introduce and refer to one another with people outside of their relationship. Additionally, there are advertisements for local events and organizations specifically for the LGBTQ+ community, including the Women's Bookstore and a crisis line. A number of these events take place at Clark University.
