The Good Fruit Project

Started as a joint effort between Q Christian Fellowship and The Trevor Project, the Good Fruit Project aims to do important work in helping to end the torturous practice of Conversion Therapy. Included in their site is a resource guide that helps parents, ministers, and the general public understand the importance of this work and give a Biblical answer against this practice and towards inclusion.

Angel & Nicole

Not long after I first came out and began wrestling with my faith, Angel & Nicole Morris caught my attention with their YouTube channel. Their bravery in visibility and sharing their story and their in-process journey was refreshing and challenged me to take steps to try and document my own story, which ended up becoming this blog. They've recently begun working with Pastor Bailey Brawner of Mission Hills United Methodist Church to begin a new ministry called "The Voyage," aimed towards helping give LGBTQ+ Christians a place to belong.

Transmission Ministry Collective

Author and speaker Austen Hartke has created an amazing online community for the trans and gender non-conforming Christians looking for a place to belong. Free membership allows access to an online Discord server where all aspects of life are discussed privately, as well as access to teaching, study, and online support groups led by Austen and his leadership team.

Church Clarity

If you identify as LGBTQ+ or are simply looking for a church that is affirming, the folks at Church Clarity have done a great job of putting together a ever-growing database of different churches across the United States and where they stand on different issues such as LGBTQ+ inclusion and leadership to women in ministry, etc. This site is a life-saver for so many people who simply want a safe space to worship in as they are. If that's you, I highly recommend this site.

Side by Side

In January 2020, the church I was attending, City Church of Long Beach, hosted a one day seminar to open the conversation and explore the differences of how conservative and progressive Christians understand the Scriptures and experience surrounding human sexuality and gender identity. This is a great stepping stone for those who aren't sure what the different viewpoints are and why we hold to them.

Forge Online

In 2019, friend and fellow Reformation Project Leadership Cohort alum Justin Hershey began interviewing and posting stories and resources of other LGBTQ+ Christians as a way to help bring awareness of our stories to those who may not have a personal understanding of what we face. This site is a great way to bring the human experience to what is often an academic study.
