“Reconciling the Rainbow”



“Reconciling the Rainbow” is a collection of short stories & poetry connecting the Christian faith with LGBTQ identity. All proceeds from book sales will be donated to faith-based organizations who focus on aiding LGBTQ at-risk youth, and advocate for inclusion of LGBTQ people in churches/Christian communities.
