Rev. Dr. Cindi Love, our executive director, recently published an article on The Huffington Post entitled “Coming Out Is An Act of Love.”
I am grateful for the life and vision of a pioneer named Dr. Rob Eichberg. He wrote Coming Out is an Act of Love and co-founded The Advocate Experience, a really intense workshop on learning to live with full integrity.
Our family attended a series of Experience workshops after my son, Joshua, came out in 1988 in Abilene, Texas. Joshua and my partner, Sue, went to a workshop led by Dr. Eichberg. My daughter and I went to a workshop led by Eichberg’s colleague, Honey Ward, who continues to lead them today. I am grateful for Honey and her skill in blowing open the closet in which I was living out my fundamentalist Christian religion. I believe I would have lost my faith in God without her intervention. I know I would have lost my son.
Until the Advocate Experience, I confused God with religion and religion with truth. A tragic mistake.
