“Ex-gay” ministry – history, pain, forgiveness, and finding happiness

Ex-gay ministries were the hope for many Christians to change their sexual orientation. Although it never changed anyone’s SO, it is still supported by some churches. But what are the consequences of attempting to change one’s SO? What happens when LGBTQ+ people realise it doesn’t work? How do founders cope with all the pain it caused people? Jeremy Marks talks about how he became the founder of an ex-gay ministry in England and his change of mind as well as his personal journey of self-acceptance and life in a mixed-orientation marriage.
