Justin Lee is the founder and executive director of The Gay Christian Network, an interdenominational nonprofit organization serving LGBT Christians and those who care about them. He is the host of GCN Radio, a popular podcast on faith and sexuality, and author of Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate.
Justin grew up as a conservative Southern Baptist, preaching against gay acceptance until questions about his own sexuality forced him to reconsider everything he thought he knew. Today, he focuses on building bridges between those who disagree, with an approach that has been called “ingenious” by The Advocate and praised as “fresh air” by the former Archbishop of Canterbury.
Justin has been featured in numerous media outlets, including Dr. Phil, Anderson Cooper 360, NPR’s All Things Considered, and a front page story in The New York Times. He speaks frequently across the country, is a contributor to the Huffington Post, and writes about issues of faith and culture on his own blog, Crumbs from the Communion Table, at JustinLee.co.
