This Month's Featured Story

On February 17, 2019, Pastor Ray Waters at the Village Church in Atlanta interviewed me. We discussed my life history regarding being a Christian gay man, including my coming-out experience. Although brief, it gives an overview of how I new I was different at age 10, repressed my sexual orientation, married Nancy and lived successfully in a mixed orientation marriage for 35 years, and then came-out as a gay man after her death in early 2017. I hope that my transparancy will be helpful to others who are trying to navigate their own difficult journey in life.
