(Note: Blue Babies Pink is like an audio book. Start with the Prologue, then Episode 1, Episode 2, etc.)

For nearly a decade, Brett Trapp kept a secret journal of thoughts on being gay and Christian, knowing one day he'd shout the story he feared most.

On a Wednesday morning in late 2016, he logged on to Facebook and began shouting...

He started by publishing a Gossip Guide to his sexuality—a cheeky way to let friends know his secret. He then began sharing the vivid details of his story through a 44-episode memoir, published as one episode per day. He called the story Blue Babies Pink.

Within days, Blue Babies Pink began to spread through social media. Thousands of readers tuned in, eagerly waiting for the daily installment to be released. Readers resonated deeply with Brett's struggle with faith, loneliness, shame, singleness, workaholism, and uncertainty.

Called "the Netflix of blogs," more than 100,000 people have read Blue Babies Pink to date.

Brett, thank you for sharing your story. Your honesty and humility were so compelling and encouraging. I feel more loved for who I am just hearing your processing.

Bravo!

I can’t stop binge listening. I’ve never heard such a detailed account of what it’s like to grow up gay in the Bible Belt. It’s so eye opening and I will be referring many to this podcast. A must listen for all Christians, and certainly any young person feeling isolated or alone because of their sexual orientation.

Fear

Fear is such a powerful motivator and I allowed it to prevent me from developing friendships for fear of the other person finding out I’m same sex attracted. The very few friends I did have were precious to me, but I wasn’t strong enough to prevent those relationships dwindling to nothing due to the same fear. Hearing Brett go through his fears helped me realize how crippling fear is to people. Sharing his fears and knowing my own, I can’t help but feel I have a brother in Brett. “I have a brother from another mother.... and father”. Brothers nonetheless.

Listening to Brett’s story reminded me so much of mine. We both experienced that debilitating fear of revealing our true selves to friends and family. God doesn’t make junk! I believe that now, ....I wish I could have believed it when I was 15 and started to block/distract my gay side.

Brett, you’re right, we all have our story to tell. I’m glad I listened to yours as I know many other LGBT people will as well. It resonated in my soul and hope to one day tell mine.

Thank you so much for sharing your story!
