Coming out of religion

Silent Gays is an independent service that:

  • directly addresses the abuses of religion and "gay conversion therapy" (aka reparative therapy or "pray away the gay")
  • help you to live with integrity and personal honesty
  • provide safe spaces for you to look directly at the damage caused to you by church abuse and Christian doctrine, exposing the mental health issues and suffering caused as a direct result
  • help guide you through the process of "deconstructing" and finding who you really are in all the mess
  • facilitate private groups/forums
  • provide a comprehensive range of resources
  • provides referrals to counsellors and other support networks


We are NOT a Christian LGBT support group –
we provide resources and spaces to explore sexuality, gender AND religious belief systems


Our core standards are always love, acceptance, compassion, nurture and empathy.
Theology, doctrines or any specific religious beliefs are secondary to the support and unconditional love for every individual


Our foundational value is unconditional love and acceptance through peer support
and a private/secure place to freely share amongst those who care and understand


We also conduct seminars/lectures, workshops and a variety of training options, from small groups to corporate and academic, covering the complex topic of the nature of gender and sexuality in practical terms and the unique needs of LGBT people
