In the video series State of Grace, Grace Baldridge explores the lives of LGBTQ+ people in celebrity-endorsed megachurches, the contemporary Christian music industry, and the reception of trans people in the church.

As someone who left their conservative protestant sect over issues which really boiled down to queerness, I would urge these people to leave. But, if they are determined, then my hat is off to them for fighting the best fight.

Thanks for posting this. State of Grace looks very interesting.

I've watched several of these, and the fact that Grace herself (I can't find her pronouns anywhere, but she has RTed things that use "her") comes from a very religious background AND is queer and married to a woman gives the series a really interesting viewpoint. In one episode, she discusses Christian contemporary music, and not only does she have the experience of growing up being a CCM fan, she's also a musician who writes a song with one of the artists she's interviewing. I am queer but the farthest thing from Christian, and yet I still really appreciate her coverage of these topics. (And if I'm misgendering Grace, please let me know!)
