Priscilla - Patron Saint of Gays.
Priscilla was a woman of great faith who lived in Corinth in Greece.
She and her husband Aquilla were Jews who had been expelled from Rome by Claudius.
St. Paul stayed with them and worked as a tent maker.
Priscilla and her husband risked their lives to harbor Paul and showed great faith in the early Christian Church.
As we know Priscilla is also the name of the famous Queen of the Desert - a movie about three drag queens who travel across the Australian desert in a pink bus called Priscilla to a venue in Alice Springs.
So I think that Priscilla - which means worthy - would be a good patron saint for the gay community.
