“Can you be a gay man, a lesbian, or a transgender person, and still be a Catholic?”

Half of the panelists were members of the LGBT community, while the other half was comprised of conservative Catholics, including one young priest.

“We’re doing it, right?” Eve Tushnet, a lesbian Catholic author and blogger, responded. “We exist. So it must be possible.”
