Abstract:The issue of homosexuality in the Anglican Communion came to the spotlight at the 1998 Lambeth Conference, at which the Anglican bishops of the Global South of the Anglican Communion emerged as the most prominent opponents of any form of approval of homosexual practice by the Anglican Church. By asking the question Bishop Frank Weston of Zanzibar posed in 1913: 'Anglican Communion: for what should she stand?' Anglican bishops of the Global South of the Anglican Communion drew the Communion's attention to the place and role of Global South Anglicanism in the Communion and World Christianity. This article discusses the legacy of Bishop Frank Weston. Notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
