Closing a Chapter

Is it too cliche to say “all good things must come to an end?” Or is it just a little stuffy?

Anyhow, the time has come for me to move on from this blog.

This platform has meant the world to me. It has been a space for me to process my thoughts on being queer in the Church, and it has helped others put words to feelings in regards to their relationship with modern Christianity. I have met people from all over the world via this blog, and I am so eternally grateful that anyone would even consider reading my thoughts on this platform.

I am moving on from this blog because I no longer have a home here. My last post felt like the ideological conclusion to everything I’ve ever written here. From the beginning, this blog has been asking the question “Can I remain in the Church while growing into a place of self-acceptance, becoming the person God created me to be?” In all honesty, it seems that I’ve answered that question, and I am satisfied with the conclusion for now.

What does that mean going forward?

Glad you asked.

I am currently working on a new blog and I am beginning the process of writing a book on fem black queerness. I will be launching a Patreon to raise funds for this, more expansive project. I am excited to focus my energies into a project that is so close to my heart and that will tell a grossly untold story. Representation matters, so I hope to continue pushing forth important conversations in a way that will allow others to be seen and to take up valuable space.

Please keep up with me on social media as this is the best way for you to remain updated on my writing, my upcoming Patreon announcement, and anything else you might need to know about this transitional phase in my writing endeavors.

Thank you to every single person who has engaged with my writing so far.

It is so far from over. I hope you will join me in this new journey.

With love,

Joe
