COMMUNITY

Our Patreon originally launched with a handful of folks pledging to cover site and equipment costs, and it’s since grown into a thriving community meeting in various forms and regularity, digital and otherwise. We’re grateful for the ongoing support as our patrons fuel the continuing growth of both our content and our community! We’d be honored to have you join the fold, too.

Never in my life had I ever thought or dreamed that another Christian wrestled with sexuality and faith the way that I do, but then I discovered Your Other Brothers. The raw, vulnerable blogs, the encouraging podcasts, and the Christ-centered community of YOB is what makes pledging as easy as breathing. I am eternally grateful for YOB and the important role it has played in my growth in regards to faith and sexuality.

The blogs, Facebook meetups, as well as Zoom meetings discuss issues that I cannot hear about from any other resource – from people who have a similar understanding of Scripture and a similar life circumstance, at least from a sexual identity standpoint. The reason that I want to pledge is to support our common voice in "the wilderness" that somehow is rarely heard in the church, whether it be progressive or conservative. There needs to be a thousand YOB groups, and maybe one day they will exist, but until then we need to support the cause as it is now – to love and support those kindred souls that God has placed in our path, regardless of the physical distance.

I decided to pledge because I want to support the podcast. I haven't found a podcast like this in my native language (Spanish) and I find it very encouraging that you guys touch on topics like masturbation, porn, male intimacy, friendships, etc. from the SSA/gay perspective and always point to the Lord Jesus; for me personally it is very hard to do so on those topics beyond the Christian clichés, so I feel very supported and accompanied. It's my hope and prayer that you can carry on the same direction.

I love being in and supporting a community of brothers where our different stories are heard…and seeing how similar they are. A safe space to be heard and loved and seeing people share those stories for the first time. This is why I support and engage with the brotherhood known as YOB.

Matthew, 36, Texas pledging monthly since June 2017

I follow YOB mostly through the podcasts, where from the moment I first heard Tom and the others share their stories, I knew I belonged and wanted to be a part of this community and support it. Especially as someone in the closet who feels he lives this life constantly unseen, it means so much to be known and loved here in the YOB community. Thank you YOB for giving me a home away from home!

RP, 61, Washingtonstarted pledging October 2016

As a person who has been a single gay Christian pursuing biblical sexuality my entire adult life, and closing in on middle age, YOB has provided me a safe space to connect with other brothers who understand my life circumstances, and can help empower me to live as a man of God in ways that no other group of men can.

Prior to finding the YOB blog and podcast, I never would have imagined a safe space to have such candid and vulnerable conversations surrounding same-sex attraction and other men’s issues. And once I experienced the virtual and in-person retreats, I knew I had found my people and that God was doing something truly special through us.

Andrew, 28, Texaspledging monthly since April 2020

I joined YOB after having gone through some soul-searching myself and then finding the YOB blog to be so raw and genuine. This group of guys on our Discord server and Zoom calls makes me, a gay, celibate Christian, feel welcome and normal since I am not out of place here. Through our monthly book club, I have enjoyed digging into books I might have otherwise never read, such as "Boy Erased," and I really appreciate having the opportunity to be a part of our prayer calls when we lift each other up in prayer.

John, 43, Kansaspledging monthly since October 2021

I have always treasured the YOB community whether I was a patron or not because of the vulnerable and authentic conversations which are so evident in the different media streams available at Your Other Brothers. I feel safe and accepted in this community in ways that are otherwise not available to me, especially in my church community.
