This interview discusses religion, the homophile movement, GlideMemorial Church in the mid 1960s, and the formation of the Council on Religion and the Homosexual (CRH). The interview was conducted by Paul Gabriel.
Methodist minister Lewis E. Durham took the post of Glide Foundation program director in 1962. Durham oversaw the foundation’s transformation from a trust fund into a multidimensional social-service agency. Hiring talented young minsters, Glide Urban Center became one of the most active centers of radical religion in the country. Durham became the Dean of Students when the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality opened in 1974.
