Colin Coward awarded OBE

Changing Attitude UK announces that Colin Coward, long time advocate for full equality of LGBTI persons, has been honored by the Queen by appointment as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE)

The Revd Colin Coward, the founder and Director of Changing Attitude England, has been appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen’s Birthday 2014 Honours List.

010Colin500x.jpgThe trustees of Changing Attitude England welcome this recognition of Colin’s contribution to the work for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in the Church of England and the Anglican Communion.

From Kate Smith, chair of trustees:

“This is very welcome recognition for Colin’s years of hard work and tenacity in an environment where it sometimes must have felt that nothing would ever change. We still have a little way to go, but we are convinced that through his dedication, and that of all our supporters, we will in the end have a more honest, more accepting Church – one that doesn’t stigmatise difference, and is therefore a better place for everyone. We really appreciate the encouragement that this recognition from the state brings to Colin and all of us.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
