Why I Chose my LGBTQ Child Over the Evangelical Church

Why I Chose my LGBTQ Child Over the Evangelical Church January 6, 2019

She stood on stage in front of over 5,000 people. She told of a phone call she received where her life changed forever. It was her daughter on the other end, “Mom, I think I am bisexual.”

She turned to her church, her community, for support. She was told that she had to choose between her church or her daughter.

Her voice cracked as she shared of the life she knew dissolving. She loves her community and she loves her daughter.

She paused on stage, all 5,000 of us collectively held our breath. With tears in her eyes she said, “I chose my child!”

The room exploded with applause.
