Gay, Christian, and in the Closet

Here are blogs of three women who are Christians, lesbian and in the closet. They tell their stories on their blogs.

Closeted Pastor

Thoughts from a Closet Gay Christian in Ministry

Perhaps in their stories you will hear echoes of your own story or that of someone you love.


  1. I must say this clearly- I love you John Shuck! You are truly a man doing the work of God here and how grateful I am to be connected to you in any way.

    Peace, cooperation, understanding and the general spreading around of the love of God is good work. You do it well and you do it constantly. You do it without invoking fear, spreading hate or with the use of anything punitive. Amen to that!

    Thank you.

  2. Well golly shucks, Fran, that is pretty darn sweet of you.

    Thank you for that and for your voice for justice and peace!

  3. thanks for raising awareness that there are those of us out there who are struggling to find the balance between being real and being careful closeted gay christian women in ministry!

    john shuck, you're one cool dude.

  4. Thanks, Hidden, but you are the cool one!
