Coming Out

Rebecca's Story

Rebecca's Story

EQUIP has asked Side B gay Christian friends and family members to share their stories. Check out this story from Rebecca (name changed):

“I think maybe we should wait a while before you start leading in our Sunday School.” Even though I had braced for these words, I couldn’t stop the sinking feeling in my stomach and the prick of tears in my eyes. “I have a few questions for you,” continued Helen (name changed), the young adults minister at my church. Why? Because I am bisexual.

Help your Church Respond Compassionately

Help your Church Respond Compassionately

EQUIP has designed and tested a program, called Coming Out & Gay Pride: A Compassionate Christian Response, that invites Christians to think deeply and have healthy conversation about these topics. Better yet, this year your church can host Coming Out & Gay Pride at so that your members can learn how to respond compassionately to gay pride and coming out.
