Rachel Gilson
Rachel Gilson is director of theological development at Cru Northeast.

She is the author of Born Again This Way: Coming Out, Coming to Faith, and What Comes Next, and her writing has been featured in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and Desiring God, among other places. Like Rebecca McGlaughlin, Rachel has primarily experienced same-sex attraction throughout her life. She engaged in same-sex relationships before coming to faith in Christ as a student at Yale.

“The truth is, even 10 years into my marriage, when I experience attraction to someone other than my spouse, that person is female. Still, my marriage has been a place of joy and healing. When people ask me my orientation, my most honest answer is “married”—with the same blessings and burdens of other married believers, and with the same source of hope and power, the Holy Spirit.”
