Yvonne Harrison, pastor of the Pentecostal Restoration Temple Ministries in New York City, is expecting a daughter with her partner, Tiffany.

When the story of Pastor Yvonne Harrison and her partner, Tiffany, crossed my screen yesterday, I just knew I had to share. As someone who loves reading and sharing love stories about us, I found it incredibly rare and exciting to see a story about this black woman following her calling AND building a family. Below is an excerpt from the article on Edge on the Net:

“When Yvonne Harrison started her Pentecostal Restoration Temple Ministries four years ago in New York’s Union Square area, she wanted to create a church that was progressive and affirming. Now, this lesbian pastor looks forward to adding one more to her congregation of 155: she is seven months pregnant with her first child.


“I am same-gender loving and have been married to my wife for four years now,” said Harrison. “We are very committed to our community, and being able to start our family shows that we have made tremendous segues.”

Harrison said that her congregants were “excited and elated” about her pregnancy, as their daughter would be the first baby in the new church.’
