Marriage Equality is Front and Center at Oakhurst

Marriage Equality is Front and Center at Oakhurst

If you were at Oakhurst for the Interfaith Vigil for Marriage Equality on April 27, you heard the dynamic preaching of Duncan Teague on the evening before the Supreme Court began hearings on same sex marriage. Now the court has put an end to same-sex marriage bans in the 14 states that still maintain them, including Georgia. On Sunday, July 26, we welcome Duncan back to the pulpit for a celebration of Marriage Equality and a look at the challenges that still lie ahead.

Rev. Duncan E. Teague is very honored to be the Faith Outreach Consultant for Georgia Equality and Freedom to Marry as his first professional job as an ordained and credentialed Unitarian Universalists (UU) minister. He is a graduate of Candler School of Theology. He worked in HIV/AIDS education, research, and prevention for many years as an out, gay man. He is a recognized social change agent, performing artist, published poet and writer. 
 
As a poet performer Teague was the senior member of The ADODI Muse; A Gay Negro Ensemble. He is also featured in the award winning stage work based on the anthology, Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South by author and performer, E. Patrick Johnson, Ph.D. of Northwestern University. In addition to these many accomplishments, Teague is an inductee into the Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers of Morehouse College. Currently, Teague lives in Decatur, GA with his husband, David J. Thurman, an instructor at Emory School of Medicine and a consultant with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They along with their families are celebrating their twenty plus years together.
