A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to share the preface of my book, Divinely Queer: My Journey to Spirituality Through Sexuality at an open mic event called GodTalkUnfiltered. It was an event for people to share their thoughts, feelings, and perspectives about God. The event was the first of its kind in our community and was very open and welcoming to people of all and no religious persuasions. The experience was exciting and a little nerve-wracking for me as it gave me an opportunity to share my book, which is my personal story of my spiritual journey, with complete strangers. I'm happy to report that it seemed well-received and led to some very compassionate conversations at the end of the event. I'm taking this opportunity now to share it with the rest of the world. If you know someone who needs to hear this story - or even if you don't - I would love for you to share this post so that it may find its way to those whose hearts are seeking this message. If you are a person who identifies on the LGBTQ...LMNOP spectrum and as a person of faith, I also invite you to share your own experiences with the Divine here in the comments. Divinely Queer will be available for purchase in 2018.
