Op-Ed: We, The Black Church, Have a Sex Problem

Gay and transgender members of our churches, as well as their families and friends, dwell in an abiding sense of concern and trepidation. Far too often, they realistically expect or have the experience of isolation, condemnation and/or invisibility.

Gospel of Intolerance

Raised in Pennsylvania, I grew up in the black church. My father was a religious leader in the community, and my sister is a pastor. I went to church every Sunday and sang in the choir.

That experience left me with the lifelong desire to explore the power of religion to transform lives or destroy them.
