“Call Me Troy” profiles the life of one of the LGBTQ+ community’s most visible and tenacious advocates for change, Rev. Troy Perry. Rev. Perry is the founder of the Metropolitan Community Church – the first church to recognize the spiritual needs of the LGBTQ+ community. He was also the first openly gay person to serve on the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, he performed the first public same-sex wedding in the U.S. in 1969, and in 1970 he filed the first-ever lawsuit seeking legal recognition for same-gender marriages. From presidential advisor to outspoken advocate, Perry has been on the front lines leading the charge for equal rights and protections for LGBTQ+ people, and for providing a place for all people, all of sexual orientations, to worship side by side. This film celebrates his life and his legacy.
