FCQ: Amber Cantorna LGBTQ Advocate and author of "Refocusing my Family"

  • Bond Collective 68 3rd Street Brooklyn, NY, 11231 United States (map)

Register for this event now! 

In her new memoir, Refocusing My Family, Amber Cantorna unveils what it was like to be raised as the homeschooled daughter of a Focus on the Family executive, in the epi-center of Christian family values, and how coming out as gay tore that paradigm apart, shunned her from her family, and burdened her with a degree of devastation that nearly took her life. With grace and transparency, Amber’s book sheds light on the harm that religious and family rejection reeks on the human soul, and offers to LGBTQ people and their religious families, a better way to love.

Amber will be speaking at Forefront Church's quarterly Faith, Culture, and Questions event on Thursday, Jan 11th at 7:00pm at Bond Collective in Brooklyn, NY. The event will be followed by a book signing.

Amber Cantorna is the founder and president of Beyond, a non-profit organization providing support to LGBTQ people as they navigate their coming out process. She is a sought-after speaker and musician, and blogs at
