Contemporary Christian musician Jennifer Knapp discusses the challenges of being “out” in certain religious communities and the healing that comes from being open.
Highly recognized as a premier artist in the Christian contemporary music genre, Jennifer Knapp has unashamedly claimed her faith and her sexual orientation with astonishing straightforwardness and honesty. Her candor and compassion have led her to engage the challenging issue of LGBT inclusion and affirmation in religious communities. In an effort to continue to create a positive and constructive dialogue on behalf of LGBT people of faith, Jennifer presents Inside Out Faith.
Having experienced firsthand the devastating effects of rejection and judgment, Jennifer knows full well the challenges of being “out” in certain faith communities. However, it is in the sharing of her journey through story, music, and conversation that she has discovered the healing that comes from breaking the silence.
