Join YCD and the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado to hear from author Amber Cantorna, and to have a group discussion on navigating the intersection of religion, family and sexuality.
Amber is the home-schooled daughter of a 30-year executive at Focus on the Family and grew up entrenched in the values that the organization embodies while her conservative Christian parents worked hard to protect her from the outside world. But when Amber came out as gay at the age of 27, she lost everything, and her world forever changed.
Now, six years later, Amber is married the love of her life and dedicates her time to writing, speaking, and sharing her story in order to bring hope to other LGBTQ+ people of faith. Her memoir, Refocusing My Family: Coming Out, Being Cast Out, and Discovering the True Love of God is now available everywhere books are sold.
This event is free and open to all students, parents and teachers.
