When I was struggling to reconcile my faith with my sexuality through my teen years and into my 20’s, I constantly struggled to find resources that would encourage me to embrace them both. There were many Christian resources that encouraged the ex-gay message, and there were many gay resources that didn’t talk about God or Jesus – and if they did, it was usually in hurt or anger.
This is why I wrote my book, STILL STACE: My Gay Christian Coming-of-Age Story. (Coming Oct 19, 2021 – pre-order now in Canada or the States! *Please use independent bookstores wherever possible!)
Thankfully now, there are some resources out there that deal specifically with reconciling faith and sexuality. Most of these resources will be at the back of my book, but I am posting them here as well as a permanent post. They are also available on the SheLoves website – along with this amazing webinar we did to talk about owning my gay Christian story!
