Evangelical Christians’ Lesbian Poster Girl
Julie Rodgers was raised in a conservative evangelical home, so she knew they’d be horrified when she came out as a lesbian in her teens. To please her family and community, she first tried to change who she was, then she tried to deny it.

Her forthcoming memoir is “Outlove: A Queer Christian Survival Story.”
