Since making the transition to professional ministry from a longtime career in HIV/AIDS education, advocacy, research coordination at AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta, Georgia State University and several community-based organizations—national and local— Duncan is joining Georgia Equality as our new Faith Outreach Consultant. This position will be in partnership with the Freedom to Marry organization. This mix of ministry and community political response seems quite appropriate, as Duncan was recently ordained by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta and has completed credentialing for the larger Unitarian Universalist Association in 2014. He is a 2011 Master of Divinity, Candler School of Theology, Emory University graduate, with emphasis on ministry to community. Duncan believes in the separation of church and state, but also the sacredness of all our work for justice and equity. Some may also recognize Duncan from his poetry and performance life, which he says he will somehow have to maintain. Duncan and his husband, David Thurman, of the Decatur area, are longtime supporters of GE.
