Finding Intimacy and Community As a Celibate Gay Christian: Art Pereira
Finding Intimacy and Community As a Celibate Gay Christian: Art Pereira Theology in the Raw
Art is the Director of Community Care for Revoice–an organization whose mission is to support and encourage gay, lesbian, bisexual, and other same-sex attracted Christians—as well as those who love them—so that all in the Church might be empowered to live in gospel unity while observing the historic Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality. Art realized he was gay at around age 12 and became a Christian in his late teens. He’s served as a youth pastor and currently works for Revoice. Our converation reflects upon his journey, which includes seeking to find intimacy and community as a gay man and committed Christ follower pursuing celibacy.
