First off, thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Randy Thomas and I am an artist, writer, and LGBT+ advocate. However, my favorite title is being “Uncle Silly” to my wonderful, fantastic, creative, beautiful, and amazing nieces!
I am a Christian who also happens to be gay. I celebrate my faith in Christ and love meeting people. It truly is a joy to experience other’s stories.
In my former career as the last Executive Vice President of Exodus International, I contributed to several books and was featured in a full-page ad in The Los Angeles Times, as well as Chuck Colson’s book The Good Life, and in media outlets around the world. Of course, that was from an ex-gay perspective I no longer promote or encourage. I am also supportive of efforts to end conversion therapy for minors. I strongly speak out against efforts to “change” a person’s sexual orientation.
I came out again on January 12th, 2015 after 21 years in the ex-gay world (1992 – 2013, when we shut down Exodus.) It’s not been the easiest transition but I feel freer than I ever have before. Today I rejoice in the open doors that grace unlocks and enjoy experiencing the beauty and image of God in every person I have the good fortune to meet.
My goal is to use every last ounce of my creative energy and gifts to honor, bless, and to encourage others.
Let’s connect on social media, or message me confidentially. I’d love to hear about your inspiration, your story, and passion.
