Stereotypd.com (formerly Out in Asheville), has a great review/interview with me.
Here’s an excerpt:
The idea of approaching the world, especially one’s opponents, with “gentleness and reverence” is at the heart of the strategies presented in Bulletproof Faith: A Spiritual Survival Guide for Gay and Lesbian Christians. Bulletproof Faith is, at its core, a book that would help anyone of any faith (or none at all) and any sexual identity but LGBT people of faith will be helped the most by it. In the book, Chellew-Hodge talks about becoming “bulletproof.” In a sense, being bulletproof means having a thick skin or more accurately being so at ease in one’s skin, comfortable with one’s self and identity, that hate speech is ineffective. The foundation of bulletproofness is embracing one’s authentic self, not the homophobic images forced upon the LGBTQ community by our opponents and oppressors.
Thanks to Lin Orndorf for the interview and great article!
