Kathy is the founder of Canyon Walker Connections and the author of Walking the Bridgeless Canyon: Repairing the Breach Between the Church and the LGBT Community and her soon to be released book, Forging a Sacred Weapon: How the Bible Became Anti-Gay.
 

What makes Kathy’s approach so unique in the conversation is that she constantly asking questions such as these that were addressed in her first book:

How did history, culture, science, and politics intertwine to create social discrimination against the gay and transgender community?

When and why did the conservative Christian community turn their focus on the gay and transgender community?

Should Christian fellowship be extended to gay and transgender people?

Should civil marriages, or even Christian marriages, be granted to them?

What is happening within the LGBT Christian movement today?

She has been an incredible ally for LGBTQ Christians and has years of research behind her. Space is limited!
