Bishop Gene Robinson

Gene Robinson became the first openly gay bishop inside the wider Anglican Church in 2003.

His election as the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire provoked a furore, threatening a schism within the Anglican Communion on the issue of homosexuality. The American has lived openly with another man for 20 years, and in June 2008 they formalised their partnership with a civil ceremony and a service of thanksgiving, further inflaming tensions.

All events are open to the public and free unless otherwise stated. Student ID is required for all students. For more information about these events or to arrange disability accommodations, contact Student Activities @ or 865.974.5455.
