We know that for a lot of people, the idea of being LGBTQ+ and Christian might seem impossible. For a long time the Bible has been used to falsely condemn the LGBTQ+ community. The truth is, you won't find a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer to this age old question, BUT there are tonnes of helpful books, websites, podcasts that help to show the true inclusive nature of the Bible and shout out about the love of God for Their beloved LGBTQ+ children.
We've popped a few of our favourite resources below, though the list isn't exhaustive we hope to update it as we go along.
