Mission: The Gay Christian Network (GCN) is the preeminent interdenominational organization supporting LGBT Christians and those who love them. GCN provides resources and support to help individuals reconcile their faith and sexuality, builds interconnected networks of supportive Christian communities, and works with families, friends, and churches to create respectful dialogue on sexual orientation issues. GCN is best known for its moderated online "safe space" community, where over 13,000 people offer one another support, prayer, fellowship, and understanding in an affirming faith-based environment. This crucial support outlet is available to anyone in the world with an internet connection and regularly saves the lives of teens and adults alike. GCN's weekly podcast, YouTube video series, and Bible study materials educate and inspire gay and straight Christians around the world, while the organization's annual conference, welcoming church network, and local groups provide important face-to-face opportunities for worship, support, and community. GCN's groundbreaking new documentary, Through My Eyes, chronicles the interactions of conservative churches and gay Christian youth and is already changing hearts and minds in the church in a profound way to promote the full support of LGBT people.

Like Nikki, I am a straight ally and have been involved with GCN for about three years. The value I see for furthering my ministry is twofold. I have firsthand relationships with a group I am trying to fight for justice for and I have a place where I can point people to. Several times a week, I am able to say in person, e mail on the internet "do you know about GCN, got to ..." It is a wonderful social community and resource.

The Gay Christian Network allows not only a safe place for gays but something more! They are naturally progressive through their feelings and experiences. They are driven by God in truth and light. This community of people does not hide themselves or seek refuge here.. They go out into the community raising awareness and breaking down walls people have set up. These wonderful people treat each other with respect and take their work in the church seriously.

GCN has had an amazing impact on my life. I found GCN at a time when I was still struggling with balancing my sexuality and spirituality. In GCN I found an amazing community of people who were there to support me and bless me at a time in my life when I needed it most. Now that a few years have passed I am not quite as in need of the support anymore but GCN is still in my life because it gives me a chance to support others the way I was supported.
