Ginger Hendrix’s finely crafted memoir, Church Girl is a Gay, recounts her life in unflinching detail. In a state centered in the Bible Belt, in the center of a proudly Christian city, Hendrix tells her story with white-hot honesty as she writes, “. . . off every road I’d ever traveled was littered with the footprints of youth group leaders leading games out of my garage. And it wasn’t until my heart broke so badly that I couldn’t stand up under the pain that my feet went looking for the soft, sandy ground of places where people weren’t sure of most anything. I was married with three kids, a leader in an evangelical non-profit. I was 48, and I knew my insides felt built to love a woman. But I still didn’t know I was gay—because I’d never asked the question. There was no question available to ask.”
