Rev. Jennifer Dalton
“Unlikely Heroes”

As we celebrate Gay Pride Month, we can look back to some of the people who brought the Pride Movement to where it is today. They are the people who shaped our world but too often are left out of the history books. They were the unlikely heroes of a movement.

Rev. Jennifer Dalton was born and raised in the mountains of Virginia. Spiritually, she was raised as Mormon and Southern Baptist. She spent four years as an aircraft technician in the USAF before completing her bachelor’s degree in political science and years later, her Master of Divinity degree from Emory’s Candler School of Theology. She is currently ordained and recognized by the Alliance of Baptists and considers herself a Unitarian Universalist Baptist. She currently works at Atlanta Medical Center as a patient advocate.
