About the Author

Julie Rodgers is a writer, speaker, and leader in the movement working for full inclusion for LGBTQ people in Christian communities. She played a significant role in shutting down Exodus International, the largest conversion therapy organization in the world, and she was also the first openly gay person to be hired by an evangelical Christian college. She is featured in Pray Away (2020), a documentary about the movement to pray the gay away. Her writing has been featured in Sojourners, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Time. She lives with her wife in Washington, DC.


"Julie Rodgers's wisdom, clarity, and voice have been saving lives for a long while. Outlove will heal broken hearts, families, and entire communities." --Glennon Doyle, author of the #1 bestseller Untamed and founder of Together Rising

"Julie's personal story is a wake-up call for anyone who believes that the harmful practice of conversion therapy is a thing of the past. Her journey will give you hope for who we can become and will inspire you to be a larger part of an overdue urgent movement for change." --Cory Booker, US Senator, former Democratic presidential candidate

"Brave, candid, beautifully vulnerable--this book is a gift, and so is Julie. Her journey hasn't been easy, yet her courageous witness and inspiring perseverance beckon us back to the healing beauty of God's irrepressible love." --Jeff Chu, author of Does Jesus Really Love Me? and co-curator of Evolving Faith

"A powerful and unflinching memoir about how love can save us. And must." --Kate Bowler, professor at Duke University and bestselling author of Everything Happens for a Reason (And Other Lies I've Loved)

"Julie Rodgers recounts her escape from a toxic system of heartbreak and trauma with integrity and an otherworldly level of grace that will inspire readers to rejoice in how perfectly God made our LGBTQ+ siblings." --Kirsten Powers, CNN Senior Political Analyst and USA Today columnist
