We kick off a new summer ConvoCast series exploring the diverse sexual identifications within our YOB community. We start with Matt who identifies as gay and Christian, but not those two identities together. He tells of his journey from “SSA” to gay and how he recently experienced feelings for a girl for the first time in his life. He shares about going to a source outside the Church to learn whether his sexual identification is as rigid as it seems.

How do you identify? Do you also resonate with the tension of identifying as a gay Christian?
About the Author
When I’m not wandering, I live in Asheville, North Carolina – the Jewel of the Blue Ridge. I’m YOB’s cofounder and editor, and I also host our two podcasts. I’ve written a couple books as Thomas Mark Zuniga, including a 2013 memoir in which I first came out. Once upon another universe I anonymously blogged about my faith and sexuality under the Xanga username, twoBeckonings. I’m an INFJ, Enneagram 4w5, and my spirit animal is the buffalo. I love to travel, and my favorite place in the world is the one where coffee and vulnerability meet.
Hey y’all! Just an SSA, full-blooded Native American, ESTJ, Enneagram 8 here. I’m a very blunt person but know when people can’t handle the whole truth. My job here is to tell you guys my story which is set up like a typical coffee shop, one-on-one talk. I’m here to challenge the way you think and encourage you spiritually. Hope you guys are ready!
