She Couldn’t Pray The Gay Away

As a teenager she tried to pray being gay away; as an adult, she prays for more inclusion. Julie Rodgers joins host Krys Boyd to discuss how religion has shaped her life, from coming out in a conservative evangelical household, to now, as she works to bridge LGBTQ communities with the church. Her book is called “Outlove: A Queer Christian Survival Story.”
