About Justin

Hi! I’m Justin. I’m a Christian, I’m gay, and I’m a geek. I believe that Christians should be known for showing love, not for being jerks.

Most people know me for my writing and nonprofit work. I’m the author of a book called Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate, and for 16 years I ran an organization working to make life better for LGBT folks in Christian communities. I’m working on a brand-new book about what I learned from those 16 years and how you can apply those principles to change hearts and minds in a world of echo chambers.

I speak and write about a bunch of stuff—serious issues like faith and sexuality but also fun stuff like theme parks and board games. I live in Orlando, Florida, right next to the Magic Kingdom.
