My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA
GCN is an incredible resource for LGBTQ people who are struggling to reconcile their sexual orientation or gender identity with their faith. For those seeking to find fellowship and support from likeminded people who've "been there", it is invaluable. I found GCN at a place in my life when I was totally in the closet and sinking further and further into a hopeless depression. I had tried everything I knew how to "fix" myself, I felt that I was totally alone in the world, and I didn't know how to share what I was going through with anyone. I had never even considered that there were actual "gay Christians" out there, and my time with this community, which has become a family to me, was instrumental in bringing me to a place of peace that I never thought possible.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
all sorts of ways in my life. I've been connected to local GCN groups and met great friends, and since finding GCN, I've reconciled my faith and sexuality and come out of the closet to friends and famil. It is great to be living a life of authenticity!
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would find ways to get the word out about GCN more than ever before. This is an incredible organization and it needs support and exposure!
