“Getting married was a priority for me. It was something that I wanted to do. If it were to happen that I would lose my job – that was a possibility – I had to understand that was the decision I was making,” she said. “Fortunately for me, that didn’t happen.”
She believes the Anglican Church still has a long way to go in terms GLBT rights.
