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.
