About Greg Thompson

When I came out, I didn't know where to turn.
Growing up Catholic and coming out as gay was a contradiction to say the least. But as I meet more people, I keep finding that resources honoring LGBTQIA+ spirituality are hard to come by. I started a podcast called "Out Loud: LGBT Stories of Faith," in 2018 to ask folks how they make it work, and the voices I've heard have been so encouraging. By becoming a patron, you can help continue a hope-filled conversation on LGBTQIA+ spirituality both online and here in Nashville.

Your support saves lives.
Two big takeaways from my interviews so far have been... 
1. We're all searching: Maybe it's a church, or a broader community, or just for the sigh of relief that comes with knowing you belong.
2. We all need each other: My journey is only one variation on so many others who come out within a faith community, and we have so much more to learn from each other.

I want to keep offering resources to LGBTQIA+ folks free of charge, so that this work reaches as many people as possible. Podcasts have the ability to reach far and wide... to the boy in the closet who lives in a city that doesn't have an active queer outreach center, or to a girl who comes out and lives where there aren't any affirming churches, or to woman who's transitioned and lost her entire community. Hearing a story that resonates with your own inspires hope.

This show is about making our voices heard, owning our stories, and relying on each other. By becoming a patron, you help our stories reach one another, and keep hope alive. Thank you!
