We are here, we exist, say ex-LGBT Christians – Staff writer for Christian Today

Members of the ex-LGBT community gathered in London over the weekend to share powerful testimonies about how they have been changed by the love of God.

The Unashamed event by X-Outloud, a project of Core Issues Trust, brought together Christians from Europe and the US who used to be LGBT but who are now embracing their God-gien gender and happily seeking opposite-sex relationships, marriage and family.

They shared moving accounts of being healed not only from unwanted same-sex attraction and gender dysphoria, but also from porn addiction, drug abuse and mental health issues like depression and suicidal thoughts.

Unashamed was held as UK governments move closer to banning so-called conversion therapy.

“If someone wants to take that away from me, then you might as well have come into my room and pushed me out the window that day,” he said.

“If shame was removed by God and through counselling, if my traumas have been healed so greatly, then does this prove that I was harmed, that I was a victim? Or that I am healed and am a victor?”

The UK government has given assurances that the conversion therapy ban will not include prayer, but some campaigners are pushing for this to be included as well.
