Those who have commented for a while at Ex-Gay Watch will know the name of Ephilei, a long-time reader who frequently commented and in 2009 wrote an article here as our guest.

XGW is sad to report that Ephilei, whose real name was Johannah, has died in a car crash at the age of 26.

On Facebook, XGW contributor Yuki Choe wrote, “We have lost an incredible ally, friend, sister. Thank you for all the joy, love, and compassion. We will miss you terribly.”

Johanna ran the website, a resource for transgender Christians and anyone looking for answers on gender and transgender issues.
