This is an encore of Episode 51. Vicky Beeching is a writer, speaker and equality campaigner named by The Guardian as "arguably the most influential Christian of her generation." Previously, she worked as a songwriter and worship leader throughout her twenties and half of her thirties and her songs are some of the most-sung in churches around the globe. When she came out as gay, all of that changed. On today's episode, Vicky talks about coming out, living with chronic illness, and the importance of Pride.
Vicky has degrees in theology from Oxford University and has recently returned to academia part-time, alongside her writing and speaking, to do a Ph.D. Her first book, Undivided, is out today with HarperCollins.
