Thanks for reading my book. If you've arrived on this page, then you are looking for further resources about the intersection of LGBTQ identity and faith.
Or perhaps, you are looking for a place you can go for a listening ear and some support.
If you are wanting help and support, I recommend contacting Switchboard LGBT. They are a confidential listening service where you can talk freely to someone who understands and empathises. They are based in London, UK, but through their instant messaging and email options, anyone around the globe can get in touch for help.
So give Switchboard a call, or an email, or an instant message if you need a safe place to talk. Their website is here.
If you are a person of faith looking for a safe and fully LGBTQ-affirming place of worship, there are lots of online databases.
If you live in the UK, the Inclusive Church Network is excellent. Access their database here.
If you live in the US, this is one of many helpful databases.
If you're looking for more books on the topic of faith and sexuality, I'd highly recommend that you pick up a copy of my friend Matthew Vines' book 'God and the Gay Christian'.
My book, Undivided, is a memoir, so it's written as a narrative/story rather than as in-depth academic theology. Matthew's book looks at all of the passages in the Bible thought to relate to same-sex relationships and sheds light on how the church has misunderstood their meaning. It's an excellent book to start with if you want to dig deeper into the Biblical texts on this topic. His book also has great footnotes, which if you follow them, will give you a whole range of other books to dive into as well.
If you've already read Matthew's book, I'd recommend this one as a further exploration of the Bible texts - Bible, Gender, Sexuality by James Brownson. Matthew quotes Brownson in his book and it's a very well respected text on LGBTQ inclusion.
Both Matthew Vines' and James Brownson's books are available from Amazon and many other booksellers.
