Godly But Gay
That's the title of my book. it will be a collection of essays and stories of my life ranging from my conservative, religious upbringing to my experiences in ministry and ex-gay therapy to my coming out.
When I mention the title it isn't unsual for people to respond with, "Joel, that title should read Godly AND Gay!" I agree that it SHOULD read that way, but the reality is in the religious world I was in the two words could not be used together. The dilemma was real. The title represents the conflict that so many in the faith community experience.
The book is a work in progress. Stay tuned here for details about publication and sales.
