The latest new items around LGBT religious issues

The COR Course

The COR Course

Coming soon!

There are literally millions of LGBT people who have suffered at the hands of religion.

Times are changing, and there is hope as attitudes and laws slowly change. But the damage left by the emotional abuse is the silent killer.

Silent Gays has been addressing this issue for some time, and looking for ways to provide real help; not just a handful of resources and encouragement (as valuable as that is).


In light of this, I’ve decided to create the COR Course – an intensive online course that addresses all the key issues faced and a way through it all in a way that is totally affirming, life giving and educational. It will address the hard stuff – the questions that are so often avoided or put in the too hard box. It will challenge and require serious “soul work”.

It is NOT a christian course and does not attempt to address doctrinal issues (there are plenty of places that do that in great depth already) – it is designed to help people de-construct and unravel the mess, enabling them to rebuild a life of integrity and self worth.

The course will delivered through the new Facebook “Units” feature that allows delivery of learning content in a simple and effective way, in a secure, private setting. 

Support will be fully available at all times via email, chat, and forum style groups, providing peer interaction and tutor mediation as well as application/reflection exercises. The lessons will cover the following areas:

  • What it means to be LGBT and the nature of sexuality and gender
  • World views and paradigms that shape the way we see and respond to ourselves and the world
  • The nature of spirituality and religion, and the reasons we are drawn to it
  • The damage of “conversion therapy” and all efforts to change our innate sexuality and gender
  • Mental health issues that LGBT people face
  • A way forward through the mess, providing powerful tools to create a new life of self acceptance and peace 


This is life changing and unique. There is nothing like this being offered anywhere specifically for LGBT people (as far as I know) and will be available at a cost that is affordable but still provide the level of expertise and support needed. Ultimately, no one should be excluded from such a valuable resource, so we are looking at price structures that provide flexibility and availability for everyone.

I’m aiming for a launch date in early September, and welcome early expressions of interest.
