Side B Ally, What I Think I Mean | GOF90
What is an LGBTQ+ Side B Ally? Several people have asked this question, and so in this episode, Dr. Jonathan G. Smith proposes a working definition. In short, a Side B Ally is a Straight Christian who is committed to the traditional sex ethic taught in the Bible and historically held by the church. Of course, there is so much more to it than just a position. To be an Ally is far more profound and more important than sex ethics.

This Episode’s Topic: Side B Ally – What I Think I Mean

To better understand why this issue matters, communication and the use of language is challenging. To bring clarity to this topic, Dr. Jonathan shares more of his heart on his passion for Gay (or Queer) Christians, particularly those who are pursuing a life of celibacy.

The full definition of a Side B Ally (a work in progress) by Dr. Jonathan G. Smith:

A Side B Ally is a straight Christian committed to the historic teaching of sexuality by the church and seeks to support Queer Christians by cultivating edifying and supportive relationships as members of the body of Christ, championing celibacy as a unique vocational calling that is beautiful and God-given, and providing space, time, and support to realize God’s very best in each persons life.
