Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For far too long, I'd felt that my only options were either to be Christian by minimizing my humanity or to be gay my minimizing my faith... or to be delusional. GCN has kept me sane, given me quite a bit of personal support, and shown me that there are thousands of other out there like me.
This sounds like a cliche, but there honestly aren't ANY other organizations that structure their beliefs the same way at GCN, and I'm thankful for all they've done.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the way I felt after reading "Great Debate" essays on the website. I knew that GCN did not just water down the Bible, but had very firm (and surprisingly conservative) beliefs.

If I had to make changes to GCN, I would make it more public. Because there are so few organizations with the same dogma, GCN has to be extremely careful not to step on any toes. If something in a random press release accidentally offended a certain group, GCN could potentially loose an audience that would have otherwise benefited from their message, and I feel this level of walking on eggshells sometimes hurts them. They occasionally can't say what they perhaps would like to.

Role:  Client Served & I've volunteered for the office, the conventions and received support from the website.
