On a daily basis, author and LGBTQ advocate Amber Cantorna receives emails asking the same question: How do LGBTQ Christians reconcile their sexuality with their faith? And what are the steps to get there?
As the gay daughter of a thirty-plus-year executive of the conservative Christian organization Focus on the Family, Amber Cantorna empathizes deeply with these questions. When she came out, she lost her family and her church, but an affirming and welcoming church helped her become her true self. In Unashamed, Cantorna shares the wisdom she’s gained, guiding Christians as they consider coming out. Readers will learn about demolishing their internalized homophobia or transphobia, finding or building an affirming faith community, preparing to come out and coming out to loved ones, setting healthy boundaries, and coping with conditional love.
