Ken Speaks…LGBTQ and Jehovah’s Witnesses

ken

There is a group of individuals that we have yet to provide an outlet to tell their story and what it is like being part of the Jehovah’s Witness religion and that is the LGBTQ community. Since our podcast focuses on helping individuals to realize that this is not the truth and to help them understand that they are not alone, this group of individuals needs assistance and support as well. Therefore, when Ken reached out and wanted to talk about his life and what it was like growing up as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and being gay, we could not turn our back on his experience.

The discussion is not about the gay lifestyle, it is actually a conversation that we could never have as Jehovah’s Witnesses. Ken is very pleasant and talks about some topics that really makes you go hmmmm…as he brings up information that truly blows the lid off of keeping it real when it comes to how individuals really feel about their lifestyle choices. No matter what you are forced to believe, if a person feels a certain way, you cannot change that.
