17 Year Old Deemed Poor Role Model for Celebrating Pride
A 17-year-old gay teenager in New Westminster was called a poor role model by her minister when she posed for a newspaper photograph for the city’s first-ever Pride celebration. Tory Inglis's picture with two gay men appeared in a front-page story on June 12 in New Westminster’s Royal City Record newspaper. Not long after, the minister at First Presbyterian Church, a church she had attended all her life, called and asked to meet to talk about her involvement in the Pride event.
