In Memoriam: Émile Letertre
The founder of the European Forum, Émile Letertre, passed away in peace on July 5th, 2015. He was 91 years old. Émile Letertre was a Catholic priest from the French group David & Jonathan who invited groups from all over Europe to the first gathering of LGBT Christians that took place in Paris 1982. He realized how important it was that we get to know each other and support one another. The European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups grew out of this initiative.
