Halifax Metropolitan Community Church closes

I saw this article in Xtra! and thought I'd pass it on. The Safe Harbour Metropolitan Community Church in Halifax, NS is closing its doors. Metropolitan Community Churches arose at the cusp of the Gay Liberation Movement and were vocal advocates for LGBT rights and the first Church in the United States and Canada to openly welcome LGBT members. As with most aspects of the gay lib movement the Church began in the US and eventually spread to Canada. A branch used to exist in Ottawa and one still does in Toronto. Here's the general MCC website and a list of the churches still active in Canada (sans Halifax of course).
