Welcome, friend.

We’re glad you're here. Settle in as we tell you a story — our story.

Our stories of faith, homosexuality, and masculinity take the form of blogs, podcasts, and videos. Journey with us however and wherever your heart leads.

Just jump right in.

As you navigate around our community, we hope you feel at home with us. Feel free to introduce yourself with a comment or an email to any of our authors. We'd love to hear from you.

Who knows? Perhaps our story will soon become your own.

Just remember: you are not alone. Even the sparrow finds a home.

Onward together,

“Coming Out” of the Country: Learning Who God Is

It was an unfamiliar city on the other side of the world, and not one soul knew who I was and what I was about. For the first time in my life I felt free, unrestricted to do anything and be anything I wanted to be. What will I do? Where will I go? Where will God take me? Who's God again?

Fruit of the Spirit: A Queer Man’s Journey for 2020

My queerness is a part of me. And my desire is to submit my whole self to Christ. Thus, why would I not hold up my sexuality to the fruit of the Spirit to test it? Perhaps I may see where my sexuality rails against the Spirit. Or perhaps I may see where the Spirit shines its attributes through my queer identity.

YOBcast Episode 055: Mentors

In the spirit of resolutions, self-improvement, and growth in this new year, we're talking about mentors: those wise, sage-like figures who guide us through this life. Tom, Ryan, and Jacob talk about their favorite mentors in books and movies, sharing some of their own mentorship experiences from years past. What qualities do all these figures share in common? We also discuss the concept of mentoring a new generation -- including whether we feel we're even capable of such a thing. It's an awesome kickstart to a new year and a new decade as we recommit to producing two podcast episodes per month!

Thanksgiving is the Worst! And Also Yearlong.
