After a hiatus of a few months, I am back on the Ex-Gay Watch team, and looking forward to bringing you a UK perspective on the ex-gay movement.
I am a British-Canadian with roots in Vancouver and Liverpool, where I now live and work freelance in various writing, web and arts-related projects. After being “born again” in my teens, I studied at a Pentecostal Bible College and spent a couple years in my native British Columbia as an associate pastor. During that time, I tore myself gradually away from my fundamentalist past. Although I had always known I was gay, truly accepting my sexuality was the end of a lengthy and painful process of leaving fundamentalism. I am now openly gay, and happily settled in my local Church of England parish.
