Pastor Ralph Carl Wushke shared part of his story and experiences as a Lutheran pastor who came out at a time when homosexuality was grounds for exclusion from ministry.  Four decades of gay activism in the church, culminating with his call and installation at First Lutheran Church, Toronto and his reinstatement to the clergy roster of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada in January 2020 will be discussed.
