Meet a church clarity volunteer: jess kotnour

Morgan Guyton

NOLA Wesley United Methodist Campus Ministry

I was saved from toxic Christianity by a mostly LGBTQ United Methodist church in Toledo, OH in 2002. As a survivor of childhood sexual trauma in the church, I have not found safer church communities than those where queer people are fully affirmed and embraced. Patriarchal church culture is not only oppressive to queer people, but it also produces environments where sexual violence occurs behind closed doors.
