A Year Ago: Friday Conversation With Cathedral Of Hope's Pastor

Neil Cazares-Thomas took over the pulpit a year ago at Cathedral of Hope, which bills itself as the nation's biggest LGBT church. The pastor talked about his plans and his background with KERA's Rick Holter in a Friday Conversation on June 12, 2015, which happened to be exactly one year before the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history.

Cazares-Thomas will sit down with Holter again this Friday to talk about life after Orlando.
